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.

I think the best option for projects like this is to focus on virtualbox which now even has 3D.


I don't understand these types of suggestions - someone recently suggested the same in the SkyOS forums.

IMO, that's a sure way to demote an up-and-coming OS to permanent-hobby status. It will never make it out of the virtual machine.

Virtual machines are great for people who want to run other operating systems for compatibility reasons, but I don't see the advantage of using them for OSes designed for daily desktop usage like Haiku. Citing that it "solves" the hardware support problem is just ignoring the actual problem.
