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.

Thanks Thom. This review is awesome! I tried Haiku some weeks ago and quickly recalled how computer magazines used to praise BeOS in mid-late 90's. Haiku's (BeOS's) philosophy is incredibly coherent with my own understanding of what one OS should be, so I'll stay tuned for more.

Developers, please continue and keep up the good work!
