BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku alpha release has always been a bit elusive. The project has been near the alpha release for a while now, but a number of difficult data-destructive bugs kept it at bay. After an informal coding sprint, the alpha is now just a decision away.

What's the point of yet another operating system? Everybody should just contribute Linux instead.


I used to think exactly like you until I found out that I was sorely wrong. Linux is still primarily optimal for servers* and there is a good need of optimal desktop operating system of general use. Haiku, and probably AROS, is filling it.

*Monolithic kernel-based Unix-based architecture is still the best server.
