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 fairly certain that someone released an input_server plugin to implement Alt-drag a few years back, but sadly I can't remember the name.

It seems to have been integrated (see previous pages in discussion), sadly someone thought that Ctl+Alt+Click was smarter in meantime...

Yes, I completely agree. This should require a single modifier key only, it doesn't matter which modifier, but it needs to be only one key.

I dislike spatial browsing because of my love for big hierarchies in file storage, but it may be better in the long run.

For deep hierarchies, I'm sure you will love Tracker's right-click drill down. It just might make spatial browsing bearable for you ;)
