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 believe they should port as much as possible from the BSD driver land and establish a healthy ecosystem to give back driver changes and improvements, ala BSD. They can accelerate the supported HW and help other projects like Net-Open or Whatever BSD to enjoy driver additions/enhancements by a new member.
