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 like beos and haiku and all, but I would imagine that somebody who agrees with or thinks similarly to Eugenia in that article would hardly see another 6 years passing and still no full r5 replacement as being less of a failure, or something that might cause one to say "not bad.."
