BeOS & Derivatives Haiku has its first distribution, but it's not coming from the Haiku development team. Pingwinek has just released GNU/Haiku 0.1.0, what is claimed to be (probably?) the first distribution of the Haiku operating system, coming from Poland. According to the Pingwinek home page, GNU/Haiku consists of the base Haiku system plus 40 packages ported from the Pingwinek GNU/Linux distribution, and it includes the GCC 2.95.3 compiler, several simple games, SDL, Midnight Commander, and ncurses. GNU/Haiku can be run from a HDD, in QEMU and VMWare or as a Live CD. Screenshots are available, and the images can be download from this page.

is it just me, or does there seem to be a number of interesting things (in terms of alternative OSes) from Poland of late?

Yes, there is some interesting projects comming from Poland. It's amazing how often I download some new app, test it and look into credits, just to find out that main developer is some guy from Poland. I think we're going to catch our western neighbours from Germany soon (while they still rule in KDE community ;) ).
