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.

" That's fair, except that developers are users too. Why would people work on an OS which they don't like as users, which they wouldn't use on a regular basis ?

You shouldn't work on an OS you don't like.
Wouldn't make sense, so maybe Haiku just isn't the OS for you.
But don't assume that if you don't like it, that every developer won't like it either though.
That was not a sentence about Haiku in particular, but rather a general thought about the fact that, in my opinion, an OS should first target people as users and only then target them as developers, since to attract devs you must attract them as users first ^^
