BeOS & Derivatives Two news items about alternative operating system news in a row? What is this, Christmas? In any case, the Haiku project, the darling of OSNews (hey it's okay now), has released its second alpha release. This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

Add multiuser support and it starts to look like a very nice OS.

There is experimental multi-user support, although I haven't tried it. Haiku already does a pretty good job of separating the parts that the user is allowed to change and the parts that the user shouldn't touch.

Including bash might lead to people actually writing bash scripts which is generally a Very Bad Thing

Why is writing Bash scripts a bad thing?
