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.

They should clearly transition to Qt being the native Haiku toolkit. It is very good, well supported and has lots of pre-existing code.

Nobody is really going to learn the BeOS API if they can write stuff in Qt and have it work on windows, linux and mac too.

Add multiuser support and it starts to look like a very nice OS. I wish they had left bash out though. Including it might lead to people actually writing bash scripts which is generally a Very Bad Thing(tm).
