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.

In my opinion, BeOS is (still!) one of the most amazing operating systems ever written. I used it for a while. There wasn't any desktop effects or technologies with bloomy names, but it was lightning fast. In 90% of all applications you hadn't to wait a second to open it.

Back in 2000 it even looked better than KDE 2.0 (or 3.0) and Windows Me in my opinion.

I am now at MacOS 10.5 - which is great - but I never experienced such a amazing system like BeOS again.

Long live Haiku! =D
