BeOS & Derivatives Haiku, the open-source BeOS replacement project, turns five years old today. Founded in August 2001 as OpenBeOS with the intention of replacing BeOS due to the lack of action by the then-ailing Be, Haiku has seen five years of change in the BeOS market but continues to progress.

They are going for compatability with R5 so as to have all those apps that have already been written.

Also, the system supports mutli-user, it's just not implemented in the UI very much (not much beyond who owns my files, namely, Baron), and not in the API.
