LXer: 1998’s most intriguing OS, 15 years later: Hands-on with Haiku alpha 4

Published at LXer:

Haiku is not only a Japanese short poem with a defined structure—it's also the name of an open-source recreation of BeOS, an alternative operating system originally developed in the mid-1990s. It was the brainchild of Jean-Louis Gassée, a flamboyant, enthusiastic manager and head of Apple France. He climbed his way up the executive ladder to become the head of “advanced product development and worldwide marketing” before being forced out of the company by then-CEO John Sculley in 1990.

I'm posting from it now (in VirtualBox) and it does look pretty good...
Mind you, I want a BeBox still.
