BeOS & Derivatives Today the latest SVN checkout of Haiku sources gave us very good news: app_server can now run Tracker (screenshot 1 2 3), although it crashes so often that it is actually unusable. You can check this yourself by downloading a Haiku image from Philipp Schmid's blog and running it in Virtual PC (or VMWare). This news is a sign that Haiku is near alpha release.

These Haiku images do boot under VMWare.
(Well at least the VMWare image does. - 2005_07_06_vmware.zip)

Previously to get it to boot in vmware you had to hold down the space bar to get to the boot menu, Then choose safemode | vesa 32 bit colour.
However one of the later posts on Philipp's site said that it would do this automatically now.
Will have to try it out.

Well it is exciting to see how fast things seem to be picking up. from CLI to even basic GUI in 2-3 months is amazing.

Thanks for all of the hard work guys.
