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 am glad to see how Haiku OS has grown in the past 7 years. I was also a BeOS user in the past and I was really in heavens at the time until they went out of business.

Now, Haiku, in my opinion, still relevant. It is simple, faaaaasssst, hackable ...but the security
is a big issue for me. I am pretty sure they will take of this issues but at the moment still very weak.

I will be keeping an eye very closely. I can not wait to switch....

Security will be a big topic for R2, indeed. We know that. Many Haiku core members want strong multi-users and security support in the future.

But we try to keep our focus on the nearest milestone, first.
