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.

Maybe he did - 12 years ago. Maybe 12 years is a long time to wait? Not to belittle the project, but it still only really does what the BeOS on my PowerMac does, and that is 12 years old. I have BeOS installs that are older than the Haiku project that still do as much, if not more.

Having said that, I have the utmost respect for the Haiku team, I fully support their effort and eagerly await R1. What I don't respect is people like yourself, who come and abuse old timers because you think you know better than us. Believe me, I've used BeOS for a lot longer than 12 years, having owned a BeBox and used the DR releases when "new".
