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.

Yeah plus they said it before, "we don't want to be another Linux distro", not using Linux although not practical is good for keeping BeOS-Haiku identity.

From my perspective I think having another free kernel around is a breathe of fresh air...man I'm tired of hearing about Linux, I wish GNU finally get HURD out of is alpha stage too.
