BeOS & Derivatives "It looks like the Haiku Webkit port initiated by Ryan Leavengood has entered a productive second stage of development, and thanks to the recent work by one of the new project team members, Andrea 'xeD' Anzani, tangible progress has been made as shown by the recent screenshot showing the HaikuLauncher application rendering bebits.com. I was curious about his work, so I went directly to the source and asked a few questions to Andrea; here are his answers." On a related note, Haiku now has a new nightly build archive.

not that it's different solely for the sake of being different.

True... If the API was "different" only by transposing all the characters around to make all the function names different - I think everyone would turn up their nose and walk away... so if that's what he meant, then I agree - that's not interesting.

However, BeOS/Haiku is "different" in a new sort of way, which is exactly what sparks the interest of people searching for something less ordinary - something thought provoking - something that challenges the way things are usually done in an effort to find a "better way".
