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'm amazed what can do with literally just a few watts of cpu power these days


I'm absolutely loving the small computing revolution! My long term goal is to be "x86 free" for general computing, not for any philosophical or moral reasons but for practicality. Ironically, my last holdout will probably be my ~1999 AMD Duron system that currently serves as both a native BeOS 5.0 Pro workstation and a Windows 98 classic gaming system. Once Haiku goes beta or release on ARM (yes, I'm aware that could be many years from now) I'll look at chucking that dinosaur for good.

I also want to break into the microcontroller world beyond the simple tinkering I've done with TI kits, but that's purely hobby stuff and can wait until I've gone down to one employer.
