BeOS & Derivatives BeOS may be dead, but over a decade after its lamentable demise the open source Haiku project keeps its legacy alive. Haiku is an attempt to build a drop-in, binary compatible replacement for BeOS, as well as extending the defunct OS's functionality and support for modern hardware. At least, that's the short-term goal - eventually, Haiku is intended significantly enhance BeOS while maintaining the same philosophy of simplicity and transparency, and without being weighed down with the legacy code of many other contemporary operating systems. Computerworld Australia recently caught up with Stephan Assmus, who has been a key contributor to the project for seven years for a lengthy chat about BeOS, the current state of Haiku and the project's future plans.

Ringel-s may also be written as a double-s (I speak German, you know ;) ). Since OSNews has issues with weird characters, I have to do it like this.

actually it's sz, but everyone uses ss (including me)
nonetheless it's a useless character and should have been abolished many decades ago...

I submitted it with an ß, though I have to admit I didn't notice in the preview if it was displaying correctly...
