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.

Worked better than R5 for me

I used BeOS from R4 until about a couple of years ago.
Recently I toyed with the idea of buying a netbook but having a tiny 10" Compaq m300 kicking around I gave Haiku a try. The only problem was the lack of wifi (so its back on FreeBSD for now...) but on the whole it was much better behaved than when I ran R5 + bone on it.

Nice work guys - keep it up!
