Another day, another year passes and Haiku is no exception. It's past midnight here in the old Albion (and other GMT lands) so today marks the 9th anniversary of Haiku's birth (or creation if you wish). As I'm sure most of you know, it was on this day that, back in 2001, Haiku's story began, then named only OpenBeOS.

Nine years later here we are, with two Alpha releases under its belt and walking (power walking? jogging? running full gallop?) to reach the much anticipated R1 goal. Join me all in wishing Haiku a very happy birthday and may many more come down the road.

Oh, and while you're at it, how about giving Haiku a birthday present? In the form of a donation maybe? *wink wink nudge nudge*
