As some of you may remember, I was always a fan of BeOS. It was ahead of its time in many respects.

"The Haiku project has finally released an official R1 alpha, after 8 years of development. This marks a significant milestone for the project, and it also debuts the first official/publicly available LiveCD ISO image that can be easily booted and used to install Haiku on x86 hardware. Haiku is a desktop operating system inspired by BeOS after Be, Inc. closed its doors in 2001. The project has remained true to the BeOS philosophy while integrating modern hardware support and features along the way."

Eugenia adds this link to an article describing the history of the OS, along with a review of the alpha version.
Some pictures of it on the infamous HP G60-235DX.
