Haiku will thrive better than never before when it goes green for beta and soon a handful of Haiku-based distros will cater the needs of the users.

Long live BeOS!
Long live Haiku!

The Haiku project doesn't encourage distros. We can't do much to keep them from happening, but we can disallow them from using the HAIKU trademarks if they're deemed Haiku-incompatible. (Anything that runs on a public Haiku release should also run without error on any Haiku distro. If it doesn't it's not "Haiku".)

Relatively speaking we're a small team with a cornucopia of herculean tasks. We try to encourage people to bring their ideas, join Haiku rather than work separately. There's plenty of opportunity, in-house, so to speak. ;)
