This news and the sad realization that it ensued hit hard the developers and users of BeOS; but many of them did not give up on the idea of letting the operating system of their dreams die, and instead embarked on the daunting task of recreating BeOS in an open source fashion. This is how OpenBeOS - now known as the Haiku Project -- was born."

This is also the first day I used Haiku without booting into Linux at all! What a coincidence. I should say, though, Haiku's speed and simplicity just amazes me!
