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.

As far as I can tell, besides the Haiku developers, not many people have been writing native Haiku software. That makes sense to me, because there isn't really a "finished" operating system yet to program for.


Fair enough.

Even so, I am an open source software developer myself, and have started working on some small Haiku projects simply because I find the API is SO AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL.


So we could see this changing pretty quickly then? Great! ;)

The API? No, it was designed by Be and has been stable for at least nine years.

Edit: WAIT! Sorry, now I understand what you meant. Yes, it is great. ;)
