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.

Whilst Haiku is nowhere near to be actually useful for myself at this point it has always had a very special place in my mind.

Ironically BeOS was a true lifesaver back in 2000 despite its uselessness otherwise. Thanks to its partition manager I was able to recover partitions screwed by Linux installations and it was the only OS that could properly fulfil my TV needs at the time ;) So its legacy is highly regarded.
