  Haiku (operating system) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Haiku, formerly known as OpenBeOS, is an open source project dedicated to the re-creation and continuation of the Be Operating System on x86 and PowerPC based computers.
Haiku's kernel is a fork of NewOS, a modular kernel written by former Be engineer Travis Geiselbrecht and is currently under heavy development.
Haiku aims to be compatible with BeOS at both the source and binary level, allowing software written and compiled for BeOS to compile and run without modification on Haiku.

 Haiku (operating system) - TheBestLinks.com - OpenBeOS, API, BeOS, Intellectual property, ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Haiku, formerly known as OpenBeOS, is an open-source project dedicated to the recreation, followed by the extension, of the Be Operating System.
Haiku was originally named OpenBeOS when it was founded in 2001, but it was thought that a new name should be chosen to avoid any possible lawsuit with Palm, Inc., who aquired Be's intellectual property and technology assets (including the BeOS source code) in 2001.
However, the most important stages of the operating system, the kernel and graphics server are, whilst working, not yet ready for public use.

 NewOS - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
NewOS is a free, in development, operating system with full source code available, along with periodic binary snapshots.
It is loosely based on concepts gleaned from BeOS, Solaris, FreeBSD, Windows NT, and other reasonably modern operating systems.
NewOS was forked and now forms the base of the Haiku (formerly OpenBeOS) operating system, which seeks to create a BeOS-compatible operating system in an open source format.

 SonicBreakdown: Wikipedia Topic   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Haiku (俳句) is one of the most important modes of Japanese poetry, a late 19th century revision by Masaoka Shiki of the old hokku, the opening verse of a linked verse form, haikai no renga.
Because the term haiku was popularized by Shiki only at the end of the 19th century, scholars are unanimous that it is technically incorrect to label hokku by pre-Shiki poets "haiku", a common practice in the 20th century.
In addition to the spread of haiku of one kind or another, the late 20th century also witnessed the surprising revival in English of the old hokku tradition, providing a continuation in spirit of pre-Shiki verse through adaptation to the English language and a wider geographic context.
