BeOS & Derivatives Can you believe they've come this far by now? Once known as OpenBeOS, Haiku today announced the release of the fourth alpha for Haiku R1. It seems like only yesterday when BeOS died and OpenBeOS rose form its ashes, generating a new hope among the legions of avid BeOS fans. Now, almost twelve years later, we've hit the fourth alpha.

That is more co-incidence rather than design. Be didn't go with multimedia right away, and the OS was written almost from the moment the hardware (Hobbit based) was in a position to be used. When the OS was being written, it was Benoit, Bob and Erich... all Macophiles. Erich also worked on Pink, so that has a lot more to do with the direction.
