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.

And then, I was like... Now what?


Find some apps and run them, see if the OS will work for you. Its hard to take off the "I use my computer like this" blinders, people get set in how they compute (look at the windows XP crowd). Just keep in mind that different isn't always unproductive. atm though Haiku is more targeted towards developers and techs, keep in mind... only computer nerds used to work on DOS back in the day ;)

If your looking for applications, http://haikufire.com is an alternative to HaikuWare. Everything on HaikuFire is tested and if an application requires external libraries, it's well documented.
