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.

What I would like it the ability to create *real* tabbed, grouped windows. Something like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCL_6YNgc8w (around 2:20). This, imo, would make more sense than current tabbing features.

The features you are looking for have been under development for some time by a group at the University of Auckland:

It has generated lots of interest and discussions. Try searching for "Stack and Tile" on google and/or in the Haiku mailing lists. Sooner or later this will be part of Haiku, but stabilizing the code and merging it into trunk is a lot of work.
