BeOS & Derivatives After eight years of hard work, the day has finally arrived. Today, September 14, the Haiku project has released its very first alpha release. With the goal of recreating one of the most beloved operating systems in history, the BeOS, they took on no small task, but it seems as if everything is finally starting to come together. Let's talk about the history of the BeOS, where Haiku comes from, and what the Alpha is like.

Yes sir, that is correct.
(By the way, good to see you again man! Any chance you're going to bring the satirical & always hilarious news channel back to life?)

Unfortunately I lost my FTP login info for the bedoper site a while back in a hard drive crash, and Jason seems to have disappeared.

But actually, the lawyer did more than that; his job also involved selling assets like the domain for the highest price possible. I once inquired into what they were asking and IIRC he wanted one million USD for it (because two-lettered dotcom domains are scarce).

That's nuts... sad to see that is currently just hosting one of those domain squatter "portal" sites.
