BeOS & Derivatives With many recent stability fixes and other improvements by Michael Lotz (mmlr) as well as others - he was able to finally nail down a couple last minor tweaks that allowed him to checkout the Haiku source from the SVN repository, compile a raw Haiku image, and test it in QEMU entirely from his Haiku install. This is the first time ever that Haiku has reportedly 'self-hosted', an unofficial important requirement for an alpha release. Please note that there are a few technicalities to be ironed out before the process can be easily reproduced by all. Update: Please note that Haiku won't be taking over the world just yet.

Ah! So it's your fault that I can't access Haiku-os.org tonight then? I think we suffered the /. effect ;)

Actually, I think that's a coincidence... the Ars Technica article (and the Slashdot article that linked it) was not related to this self-hosting news...

Just good (bad?) timing I guess ;)
