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.

Be had to have Pentium (90?) or above but your about it's video prowess is right. Ever play movies on all 6 faces of a rotating cube?

As to GoBe's software, or at least Productive, I believe it is in an Indian company's hands at present.They once made a statement about intentions to keep developing it, but I've heard no further word on that. I always hoped the Linux version would be finished and that all three versions would be brought up to date. I still use it for some personal matters because I just got so damn used to it that I hate to switch to something less easy to use.
