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.

A boot time so fast you didn't mind restarting - except for the fact that it would reset the up-time counter :-( ( obviously ).

In fact, I managed a SHOCKING 2-3 second boot time with some hacking ( some == butt loads ;-) ). Sadly the IDE / ATA systems today introduce a nice delay in the sequence on modern systems ( and 8 second boot time is 6.5 seconds of waiting for the hard drives to be recognized ).
