BeOS & Derivatives "Haiku, the open source re-creation of BeOS, threatens to become 'The Duke Nukem of operating systems', joked long-time contributor Ryan Leavengood. Actually, after eleven years of development, Haiku still falls four years short of Duke Nukem Forever's long delay, but few other projects have been so long in development. However, with the recent release of Alpha 4.1, Haiku is at last nearing general release." 2013 is going to be very exciting for Haiku.

Actually they have had a few advances.

I don't agree with bashing of Hurd, their main problem was and is, that Linux gets all the funding.

Even Minix is now getting EU funding.

Personally I look forward for the day there are more mainstream micro-kernel based OS besides QNX available.
