+ - Haiku Releases Official Alpha After 8 Years of Dev-> 2

Submitted by

NiteMair writes "The Haiku project has finally released an official R1 alpha after 8 years of development. This marks a significant milestone for the project, and it also debuts the first official/publicly available LiveCD ISO image that can be easily booted and used to install Haiku on x86 hardware. Haiku is a desktop operating system inspired by BeOS after Be, Inc. closed its doors in 2001. The project has remained true to the BeOS philosophy while integrating modern hardware support and features along the way."

Haiku Releases Official Alpha After 8 Years of Dev

  • I'm running this from within Qemu, and am very impressed. It brings back memories of BeOS from long ago. I look forward to seeing the project's direction in the future.
  • Just a reminder that Haiku is binary compatible with legacy BeOS applications. A lot of former BeOS developers have suspended their projects (or moved on to other platforms) and have been waiting for this moment to arrive before resuming their suspended projects (well, I'm one of these developers). So we should see a dramatic increase in number of applications during the following years.
