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.

Downloaded, burned CD and installed on an empty partition just waiting for Haiku. Boots in under 15 seconds and I am getting to know her again. Great that the browser works and Be apps seem to mostly work fine.

Great excitement. Thanks so much guys for getting this far and over this hurdle.

And thanks to OSnews for covering it. Saw an article in an online magazine also. The wheel is turning.
