BeOS is reborn as the open source Haiku Operating System
Remember BeOS? If you don’t that’s ok, it came out around 1995 and even though its performance was leaps and bounds above Mac OS System 8 and Windows 95, it never quite caught on, so it died off and seemingly disappeared. Now BeOS is reborn as Haiku, an open source lightweight operating system. It’s certainly more of a novelty at this point, but it’s kind of fun to play around with in a retro sort of way, and who knows maybe it will give Linux a run for it’s money? Well probably not since they’re both free. Anyway, check out Haiku, you can download it as an installable ISO, a VMWare image, or a live boot CD.
