BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

Recently used Haiku a couple of hours a day for a week, and BOY, does it suck.

I have never used BeOS, so I don't have the nostagia thing that probably makes it interesting for some people.

Compared to modern OS's, it seems awefully dated. It actually caused severe pain in my "mouse arm" because of all the insane menu navigation.

It generally feels old, awkward and I got a lot of freezes when putting it under pressure (disabling SMP helped somewhat.)

So I have to ask... is there a point to this project beyond the fun of doing it / nostalgia?
