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.

Good, pure technical read. Perhaps a bit too involved for a typical beginner (application rosters, media files), but then again - it is nice to see some of the more advanced stuff in an introductory article.

If I had to name one Haiku API feature as its distinct forte, I'd say Messaging. It is simple yet so powerful. I often miss the BeOS messaging design in other programming frameworks.
