BeOS & Derivatives After eight years of hard work, the day has finally arrived. Today, September 14, the Haiku project has released its very first alpha release. With the goal of recreating one of the most beloved operating systems in history, the BeOS, they took on no small task, but it seems as if everything is finally starting to come together. Let's talk about the history of the BeOS, where Haiku comes from, and what the Alpha is like.

I've been subscribed to the Haiku mailing lists almost as long as they've existed. For the first few years progress was (understandably) slow. But over the last year or two, I have seen almost exponential growth in the project. It seems like there are new developers contributing all the time. I don't see any reason why this growth won't continue to R1 and beyond.

Congratulations to the core developers who put so much time and effort into Haiku over the years and continue to do so.
