BeOS & Derivatives "Haiku, the open source re-creation of BeOS, threatens to become 'The Duke Nukem of operating systems', joked long-time contributor Ryan Leavengood. Actually, after eleven years of development, Haiku still falls four years short of Duke Nukem Forever's long delay, but few other projects have been so long in development. However, with the recent release of Alpha 4.1, Haiku is at last nearing general release." 2013 is going to be very exciting for Haiku.

Was that a slogan? I don't really remember where the notion came from. I think it was more a throw away comment at some point that snowballed. Did Be Inc really ever promote BeOS or the BeBox as the "new Amiga"?
