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 it should absolutely be focused on virtual machines.... VMWare player, Xen, etc. Using a VM makes it EASY for people to try out without being bogged in hardware hell. I know I'm tired of fidgeting with hardware settings just to try something out. VMs are to the point they're going mainstream. If you make your OS something that runs well in VM then you will get lots of users to start making apps and USING it. Hardware support will come when enough people are available to use it.
