The Haiku Project is a volunteer based initiative and was started on August 18th, 2001. The goal of the project is to develop and promote the adoption of Haiku, an open source, general purpose operating system. Haiku aims at personal computing, letting you do what you want with ease! Haiku adopts design concepts from the BeOS® and takes it to the next level by infusing those concepts with recent advances.
We would like to thank all donors enabling development contracts funded through Haiku, Inc. and Haikuware's Bounty program, the HSA for organizing the BeGeistert conferences, and Google's Summer of Code program.
