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.

Most FreeBSD drivers can be re-compiled for Haiku with minimal change.

Haiku has pretty awesome hardware support for a niche OS - and it is getting better continually.

The NewOS kernel was chosen because it required the least amount of work to gain BeOS binary compatibility because it was created by a Be engineer...
