BeOS & Derivatives As one can already see by the activity of the mailing lists, Haiku seems to be moving forward in a serious pace. Studio-33 takes a look at the latest build (many screenshots included, boys and girls), and concludes: "I was pretty impressed by this build. Deskbar and espacially Tracker seemed much more stable and Haiku didn't crash every four or five minutes like previous builds I tested. Work on Haiku seems to go pretty fast lately and more and more pieces are getting finished. Offcourse Haiku still needs a lot of work to become somewhat useable, but it is definately going in the right direction."

I doubt that. If YellowTab is still operating then, they could make a distribution out of it and sell it to their evolved customer/distributor base.

Perhaps Haiku could get the only reason for them to stay alive ;) It is very difficult to maintain such an outdated OS with such a small team to be really competitable to other OSes. Haiku could help them a lot with that.
