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.

Well, I wish all open source OS would support every piece of hardware there is.

But at the moment nearly all of them don't have the manpower to do that. And for some of them that day will probably never come.

You have to face reality. If the performance hit from building Haiku ontop of a very minimal Linux system (like Amithlon) is not noticeable and nearly everything "just works"(tm) then it might be worth looking at.

Or you can remain in pre-alpha (for real hardware) for a another 10 years.
