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.

On Athlonica (An Athlon XP 2000+ system, running on an nForce2 chipset board), I have even tried disabling EVERYTHING (not just ACPI) and all it does now is KDL with a "no bootable partition" (or whatever) message.

It either goes to and freezes at a blue (no icons) desktop or it KDL's. Fun.

I'm guessing that the only way to get a usable revision of Haiku on any system is to install Ubuntu and create it that way.
