BeOS & Derivatives According to a news post on the Haiku project website, a new port team is being formed to bring Java technologies to the Haiku platform. The goal of the Haiku Java Team is to port OpenJDK to Haiku, and they would like to see the port included within the structure of Sun's OpenJDK project. The Haiku developers have already been in contact with members of the OpenJDK Porters Group to pursue their objective, and a formal proposal has also been submitted for consideration by the OpenJDK project. The Haiku Java Team is an initiative lead by Bryan Varner, who together with Andrew Bachmann worked on the port of Java to BeOS in the past (demo video).

In the beginning of this effort I thought: Oh, great, we'll have an open source BeOS. Nowadays - 8 years after the last version of BeOS - with the huge progresses being made by Gnome and KDE, it seems absurd to have an operating system that considers itself as copy of BeOS 5.03 ...

But these folks can, so I guess let them ;)
