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.

I'm with you on this, as great as BeOS and Haiku are as an operating system, good apps are what will make it popular among the uninitiated. I too would love to run it on a netbook, and as the price of last generation's devices keep coming down, I may just do that, alpha or not.

After all, I can then get serious about learning to program in C using the BeOS API, and I may just churn out a few good apps myself! (Don't hold your breath though, my talents lean more towards hardware hacking than software development).
