BeOS & Derivatives Vassilis 'vasper' Perantzakis, of BeOS Max Edition fame, has announced that he will start work on WalterOS, the Haiku-based version of BeOS Max. "All code developed for this OS will be given to Haiku with the same MIT license 1 month after release at the latest. 50% of all income generated for us from any activity related to this OS (selling of CD and possibly memorabilia) will be donated to Haiku. Donations will not be accepted, please donate to Haiku." The name is not final yet, so feel free to add your own proposals.

(And to the person who said MaxOS would have the Apple legal dept coming calling... you can not claim trademark on vaguely similar names.)
Not too sure about that - don't forget what happened to Lindows v. MS. And the Apple legal folks don't exactly play golf all day.
