BeOS & Derivatives Studio33 has released part II [part I] in its series of articles looking at the current state of Haiku. "In the previous part I talked about the achievements of the Haiku Team since the project was first started, this time I will go deeper into the work that has been done lately and which parts need serious attention in the coming months." Screenshots o'plenty, boys and girls.

In the future, Haiku really needs to implement some sort of compatability port of X11 (similar to what Wine does for Win32). There's no compelling reason for me to use Haiku R1 over linux at the moment. It's bad enough I can't run Windows apps--now I can't use linux apps as well?

There's an X11 server for Beos to facilitate porting graphical unix applications you know.

Yes, but by most accounts it's dated, feature-incomplete and crappy.

Yes but then again a lot of software for BeOS is getting dated. It apparently is open source though, so people can work on that and the other 2 problems (though lord knows being open source isn't a guarantee against being crappy).

So it's definitely X11 then?

Yeah, that sounds like X11 to me.

Why not run OS/2 then? You can run Windows apps, Linux apps, DOS apps, Java apps - heck, they even have Virtual PC and Virtual Station to run the whole other needed OS if need be. We do have X11 as well, along with a posix layer. ;-) Somehow I doubt this comment will sway you or anyone else. hehe...
