BeOS & Derivatives What's that you say? You made a New Year's resolution but haven't kept it? You vowed to sharpen your programming skills, write a cool application, AND use cutting edge operating system technology? Look no further, you have come to the right place. This article will get you started writing applications for Haiku, the open source version of the advanced BeOS operating system.

If their hardware support is better than I thought, perhaps they need to make it clearer what the current state of things is...

No, not yet. Not for an alpha-quality OS. And precisely to avoid having a whole bunch of people with modern proprietary hardware lacking open specifications from whining about their hardware not working when they thought it would.

Haiku is in a state of heavy testing/development still. If you're not willing to "try" it without getting an explicit written guarantee in advance that you'll receive a certain "experience", then I think it's wrong for you. Please move along now.
