BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku alpha release has always been a bit elusive. The project has been near the alpha release for a while now, but a number of difficult data-destructive bugs kept it at bay. After an informal coding sprint, the alpha is now just a decision away.

Haiku is slowly gettin' there!

I just repaired an nForce 2 Socket A motherboard and discovered that it gives me noticeably better performance, in Haiku, using the same CPU/memory/video card, than my Jetway V266B board. Methinks either Via chipsets stink in general, or Haiku devs simply don't have the chipset information or desire to work on the older Via Socket A chipsets.

Needless to say, I am pleased by all the progress Haiku is making, even if it means I have to get a newer chipset board to see the full potential of Haiku come through.

Keep up the great work, Haiku!!!
