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.

this is great news to hear. like others have said i commend the dev team for their hard work and dedication to bringing haiku to life.

i only stopped using beos as my primary os at home and at work a few years ago. so it hasn't been that long for me sense i used beos on a full time basis. thus i look forward to buying a alpha release cd and installing it on whatever hardware is required. I think i may actually still have the Matrox card and ne2000 card i specifically bought to run R3 when it first came out. would be an appropriate use.

i guess this also means that at some point i should drag out my code archive and see if i can get some things ported over to haiku ;)

again. thanks all for your time and effort. future looks bright.
