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.

Highly interesting ! I'd love to see all of this make its way into Haiku, it's just brilliant !
Some afterthoughts, after the "wow" effect stopped :
-> When windows are grouped in an "horizontal" fashion (ie you see both at the same time), the border between them should be thinner, to let the user know about the different resizing behavior.
-> Why not introduce a "dummy tab" which allows closing all tabs and gets the resizing button while removing it from all other tabs ? It'd also allow moving all grouped tabs at the same time but easily managing tabs independently through left click (in a google chrome-like way)
