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 have never used it myself, but what I see in films on youtube reminds me a bit of riscos... especially when you have menus opening within menus within menus...

I think in terms of interface riscos HAD one of the best interfaces for its time... but its age now shows. I think when/if heiko becomes beta it will be showing its age before it's really been born.

When I look at what gnome shell looks like and does or macos, or windows 8 I can't see haiku being anything more than something that gets mentioned on sites like this.

Maybe all these niche os developers hould get together and actualy build together an OS that stands a chance of being used by more than a handfull of people. Instead of starting something that will ultimately be left uncompleted
