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.

OpenBeOS / Haiku

I have been looking forward to this since day one which is the day OpenBeOS was born. Good luck Haiku developers. I have no doubt in these developers.

I have tried the Haiku image a few times. Seriously, it behaves and looks exactly like the original BeOS except for one minor difference and I could be wrong so correct if I am wrong but I think the scroll bars in the original BeOS look different compared to the ones in Haiku?

The look has been slightly modernized a few months ago, but anyway, the real beauty is in the code ;)
It's not fully optimized but it already surpasses BeOS in a lot of areas!

If they look the same as the original BeOS that would be great.
