BeOS & Derivatives Cosmoe is back. "Well, I couldn't stay away. My lengthy hiatus away from working on Cosmoe is now over, and I am back in full force! For those of you not familiar with Cosmoe, it is a BeOS API (or Haiku API, if you will) environment running on Linux." There's even a screenshot.

"As far as I understand it, BlueEyedOS came about mostly because the folks in charge didn't like the technical and licensing decisions that Haiku made."

Actually BlueEyedOS started before Haiku, so...

Not to argue without reason, but started has many different meanings.

07/01/2001: The BlueOS project is born.
08/05/2001: FAQ has been updated
08/22/2001: mailing list opened and member section updated

You opened your mailing list on August 22, 2001

Okay, but now look at this.

[openbeos] Ok, let's start

* From: "Marcus Overhagen" <dos4gw@xxxxxx>
* To: openbeos@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
* Date: Sat, 18 Aug 2001 15:47:33 -0700

OpenBeOS opened their mailing list on the exact same day !

It seems to me you started at the same time.

08/18/2001 is 4 days earlier than 08/22/2001. How does Augst 18th. equal August 22nd.?

With a project start at July 1st. and a FAQ update approx. 2 weeks before opening the mailing lists for Haiku it seems that BlueEyedOS was the older project.

But of course - you're free to live in your own dimension ;)

BTW: Noticed how responsive Haiku is? Even in VMWare ;)
