BeOS & Derivatives Haiku Alpha 3 has been in development for more than 14 months. In that time more than 800 bugs have been identified and fixed, major sections have been updated, applications have been added and updated, and great progress has been made in supporting additional hardware. Here is a summary of updates, more details can be found here. Also inside, interviews with some core Haiku developers.

You might be right but you've been downvoted (not by me). I'd hazard that the reason is the little thing you wrote about untouchable-pure-gold Linux being a hack.

The problem I see with Haiku is that it's only "alpha 3"... and after that maybe a beta phase, before maybe a train of RCs. And that's before the actual release of a first version.

I'm concerned about how relevant Haiku will still be by that time and how many people would have any incentive or reason to actually use it as their main OS.

But this alpha 3 is still good news, maybe that it'll finally install on one of my systems.

OT: can a native speaker tell me what this means, the sentence construct feels weird: "It should be noted that over 800 bugs closed as fixed since R1 Alpha 2." Thanks.
