BeOS & Derivatives "This is the first Haiku alpha 1 status update. The goal of this status update is to provide information on how the project is going. There has recently been an consensus that it was about time to start preparing a first alpha for a myriad of reasons. To me personally, the fact that it is about time to show off the enormous amount of work that has been put in the project the past number of years. Another good reason - in my opinion - is to get everyone behind one goal: preparing the code for a first release. So what's the goal of this status update? Well, with a large number of developers actually working on the different components of the operating system, it is easy to lose track of what is going on. You can consider this a news update."

As long as there's no downloadable live CD (well, or these two images with a clear discription on how to burn a CD in X little steps), I see little chance that Haiku will gain any attention outside the little circle that nourishes the OS at the moment.

Why can't there be a way to start the OS from DOS? I mean there _was_ a way to do that. That way one could only use _one_ ordinary disk image and burn that on CD.
