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 for putting together such an excellent article that kept me glued from start to finish. It inspired me to try Haiku on a spare partition, and have to say I am very impressed with how far this project has gone.

Worked with all my hardware perfectly on my old laptop, and plays just like BeOS did back in the old days... I will be now dedicating my old laptop to Haiku and following this with interest.

It sort of reminds me of the same excitement when I discovered Linux.
