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.

Well, I have legal versions of I think all versions of BeProductive office suite. There were some really cool things about it and some things that showed it was still not that mature. I'm hoping I can get Haiku to run in VMWare on my iMac and that BeProductive will let me install it and use it. As for anyone updating BeProductive, I think the programmers that first started it were trying to get the rights to it back from whoever bought the rights from them. I would love to have current file formats supported. I don't think there is much chance though.
