BeOS & Derivatives What's that you say? You made a New Year's resolution but haven't kept it? You vowed to sharpen your programming skills, write a cool application, AND use cutting edge operating system technology? Look no further, you have come to the right place. This article will get you started writing applications for Haiku, the open source version of the advanced BeOS operating system.

R1A1 (the first Alpha) is starting to age quite a bit. For better performance try one of the recent nightles. (however avoid any nightlies between Feb 1 - 20th 2010.. there was major kernel work going on which caused data corruption/etc... that stuff should be fixed now though)

I'd like to see a refreshed release as an ISO.

Plus, there's been a lack of news on the Haiku site. I'd like to know what things have been fixed or added without going through the changlogs or devlist posting.

A once a month status report like ReactOS usually does would be helpful to us non-programmer types.

I may be a Beos/Haiku fans but even I would love to see a quarterly (4 times a year) review of the status of as many alternative OSes as possible.

Is anything going on with SkyOS for example?
