Haiku resurects BeOS as open source

   The Haiku Operating System project is a BeOS clone that started as “OpenBeOS” in 2001 as BeOS was discontinued. Haiku, like BeOS is focused on being a the ideal desktop operating system. This differs from Linux and other open source operating systems which are are intended for use in diverse environments including servers and embedded devices.
   Haiku is still in an unstable development stage. The team does not have a firm target for a R1 release yet. They don't seem to have any ISO's, but they do have raw HDD and VMWare images available for download. Again they are a very early development stage.
