BeOS & Derivatives Can you believe they've come this far by now? Once known as OpenBeOS, Haiku today announced the release of the fourth alpha for Haiku R1. It seems like only yesterday when BeOS died and OpenBeOS rose form its ashes, generating a new hope among the legions of avid BeOS fans. Now, almost twelve years later, we've hit the fourth alpha.

--i wouldn't bite at that price, maybe if they can knock $60+ off

or more budget MK802 with single core 1.5ghz @ $74 http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/18/mk802-beats-cotton-candy-to-mark... , now at the Pi-like price of ~$50 on ebay.

Off topic but just upgraded my sheevaplug to ubifs debian squeeze after bricking it, god bless jtag ports. and then installed subsonic.war under tomcat6/oracle embedded(ARMv5 headless)java1.7.0_06
and my 1.2ghz arm sheevaplug (after a night indexing) is now happily serving a 1TB music library(attached via usb NTFS-3G/FUSE) to several simultaneous clients over my home network and to mobile client apps over the internet. -I'm amazed what can do with literally just a few watts of cpu power these days..
