BeOS & Derivatives "Back in mid-2001, when the news that Be Inc. had sold its intellectual property to Palm hit the streets, what many had suspected and rumored for quite some time - that BeOS development was headed towards closure - finally became a reality. This news and the sad realization that it ensued hit hard the developers and users of BeOS; but many of them did not give up on the idea of letting the operating system of their dreams die, and instead embarked on the daunting task of recreating BeOS in an open source fashion. This is how OpenBeOS - now known as the Haiku Project -- was born."

I'm so grateful for Haiku. I dual boot, and try to use Haiku anytime I don't need to do something I can only do in Linux.

I had no experience with BeOS, but I love the simplicity, control, and speed that Haiku inherited from it.

Maybe to celebrate I will submit some more bug reports. ;)

Anyway, thanks Haiku!
