BSD and Darwin derivatives The OpenDarwin project is shutting down. "Over the past few years, OpenDarwin has become a mere hosting facility for Mac OS X related projects. The original notions of developing the Mac OS X and Darwin sources has not panned out. Availability of sources, interaction with Apple representatives, difficulty building and tracking sources, and a lack of interest from the community have all contributed to this. Administering a system to host other people's projects is not what the remaining OpenDarwin contributors had signed up for and have been doing this thankless task far longer than they expected. It is time for OpenDarwin to go dark."

Just Start working on Haiku... It is, for me, the most promising Desktop OS out there.. And in fact resembles a lot of the features that made Apple OSes interesting..

Go help those coding-heroes, guys!

Sorry for bad english.

You are right, Haiku is very promising. And BeOS was an eventual successor of MacOS Classic before Apple bought NeXT & Jobs. Unfortunately when Haiku will provide the first public release it will be little-bit obsolete.
