BeOS & Derivatives I had been following the mailing list for the Haiku project the past week with growing interest. The topic of discussion? Why, the alpha release, of course! What needs to be done, who needs to prepare what, and most importantly, what schedule are they going to settle on? Well, after numerous insightful back-and-forths, the community has settled on a schedule.

Same date as the proposed Beatles release. I'm curious as to why 9/11 wasn't chosen, to represent the dangerous nature of Haiku and what it can do to the establishment.

Actually, the official release date will most probably be on the 14th. On the 9th, they will tag the source repository, build images, and start testing those images. Then testing and possibly fixing any issues that come up will take a couple of days, before they can start distributing images to download servers. On the 14th, official announcements will be made, and the website updated with download links and a facelift.
