BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

Bug #1444

I was running Haiku up to a year ago on real hardware with very few stability problems. Of course, the system became unstable under certain circumstances but that's exactly what one would expect from pre-alpha builds.

The SATA issue is what stopped me becoming more active in testing back then and currently still prevents me from booting on my hardware.

I'm not entirely sure what happened to the driver architecture back then, or whether the changes to it introduced the problem in bug 1444 but I can't wait until that bug gets squished.

Well done Haiku team and everyone involved in the project. Can't wait to get my Haiku fix all over again...
