Haiku is an open source operating system currently in development designed from the ground up for desktop computing. Inspired by the Be Operating System, Haiku aims to provide users of all levels with a personal computing experience that is simple yet powerful, and void of any unnecessary complexities.
The Be Operating System introduced progressive concepts and technologies that we believe represent the ideal means to the end of desktop computing. Haiku will be the realization of those concepts and technologies in the form of an operating system that is open source and free.
Haiku is developed mostly by volunteers around the world in their spare time. Besides the project admins and core members, Haiku also exists thanks to the dedicated support of a fervent and friendly community, and that of Haiku Inc., a non-profit founded by project leader Michael Phipps with the purpose of supporting the development of Haiku.
