BeOS & Derivatives "Ultimately, Haiku represents a different way of viewing your personal computer. If you think that software shouldn't be riddled with bugs and incompatibilities and inefficiencies, if you hate being forced to swap out your hardware and software every few years because 'upgrades' have rendered them obsolete, and if you find that the idea of using an operating system that's fast, responsive, and simple is refreshingly novel and appealing, then maybe, just maybe, Haiku is for you." What fascinates me the most is that Haiku's not working on a tablet version. How delightfully quaint.

It would be useful today if people actually developed applications for it.


Which is not going to happen, because nobody is going to develop for a system which is fifteen years late and is not even out of alpha yet.

Alpha for Haiku means "it could eat your pet, not everything is implemented, but it's stable enough for daily use." Not "this can't even show a window without crashing" ;)

Easy to say, but that's not what people think when they see an "alpha" tag on something.
