BeOS & Derivatives Two news items about alternative operating system news in a row? What is this, Christmas? In any case, the Haiku project, the darling of OSNews (hey it's okay now), has released its second alpha release. This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

I'm very happy about the progess haiku makes every day. If it continues like that, I think with alpha 3, I won't need linux anymore, and I will have just haiku and windows7 on my notebook.
For that webpositive, even if it already works great, has to improve a little more (e.g. html5) , and a gui for Wifi (+wpa2) and perhaps 3d hw acceleration.
It also great, that even QT 4.7 is not yet released, the russians are already working on a port. Visit to see a nice screenshot :-)

It's really a pleasure to see that haiku makes great progress, even if his direct competitors have nearly stopped making progress (e.g. SkyOs,....).
