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.

Let's see some software for it. O'Reilly has posted a book about programming for BeOS in their "Out of print and other free books" section (http://oreilly.com/catalog/beosprog/book/) so there's really no excuse for C++ coders NOT to start working on awesome apps that will make Haiku into the FOSS desktop of choice!

And Haiku's website even contains a single PDF of that book with permission from the author. There are some other legacy docs available as well, see here:
