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).

I might have missed this, but where is my ISO where I can install the OS and run Be applications without virtual machines?

I think I'd focus on that first.


You do realise that Haiku is an open source project, and there fore, it done by volunteers in areas which tickle their fancy? there is no over arching development policy - people do things in their own time. At the end of the day, this isn't their job, its their hobby. Not to sound rude, but they don't owe you anything.

Yes, it would be nice if they all 'just focused' on something, but not everyone has the skills, ability or inclination in a certain area. Someone might be able to programme but it doesn't mean they necessarily have the ability to write the really low level code required. People help where they can, and we should be thankful for what ever contribution they make to a given project.
