BeOS & Derivatives This article provides a brief overview of the Haiku operating system from a programmer's point of view, with sample code for an inter-application communication application. The Haiku API is simple and powerful and by the end of this article you will be able to use a variety of objects to write your own Haiku applications. Some C or C++ coding experience is useful.

Clear, straightforward and interesting of course, I really liked this article.

It's nice to see this kind of content here in OSNews besides the usual legal BS news ;)

Yeah its great to see Haiku articles... and you're right and I think the Legalese articles are a necessary evil .. they just make me want to hurl sometimes.

Well, I could ask who has the current ownership of all the BeOS IP and if there are any patents which could threaten project like Haiku.

But I won't.

I don't think I'll be doing any BeOS/Haiku coding, but I think it is great to have such articles on OSnews again.

It is interresting reading some of the ways Haiku works, how it has some of the elements similair to Mac OS X/systemd and current Linux desktop distributions.
