BeOS & Derivatives Bryan Varner, one of the core developers of the stalled port of Java 1.4 port to BeOS R5 has an interesting post on his blog. Recently he met up with Ian Murdock of Sun at a local Java Users Group, and as a result he is now looking to restart the port, this time for Haiku.

Am I the only one who actually feel hope about having fun using a system again?


Certainly not. There are those of us (myself included) who bought a copy of BeOS R5 in the year before the big sale to Palm who are eagerly awaiting a faithful open-source evolution of the OS. I still use my R5 Pro on a Dell CPi laptop mostly for nostalgia...the day I get to run Haiku R1 final on my fairly modern desktop will be a joyous one indeed.
