BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

I made a video a few months ago showing all the various features of Haiku. I am still amazed at how well it is coming together, it definitely beats the early days of 2002 when everything on the teams page was pre-alpha with the exception of OpenBFS, which was beta.

Very nice demo! - almost the same hardware I demo'd Haiku on at LinuxWorld in August - except you have a better video card (and it shows). I used an Optiplex GX270 also, but it was the SFF version and had integrated intel video.

Thanks, I planned to use an old TNT2 card when I built it out, but the Dell nVidia card worked out of the box, even with DVI and my Apple 20" Cinema display.
