BeOS & Derivatives I had been following the mailing list for the Haiku project the past week with growing interest. The topic of discussion? Why, the alpha release, of course! What needs to be done, who needs to prepare what, and most importantly, what schedule are they going to settle on? Well, after numerous insightful back-and-forths, the community has settled on a schedule.

I should probably expand on that ;)

The great thing is that this OS is still very relevant and fills the need for a fun, responsive and lightweight modern operating system.

I'm an old AmigaOS refugee and BeOS (now Haiku) was the only OS I've used since those days that was actually fun! I think it's the simplicity and the responsiveness - all other systems seem to run like treacle in comparison.

Everytime I use it I don't want to go back to any other OS. The only thing stopping me is networking issues.

Same here, man... With the network stack at least partially derived from the bsd net stack I am hoping, fingers crossed and all, that at some point VPN will be a possibility, with MS (MPPE) compatibility.

That happens... there's no looking back.
