BeOS & Derivatives Can you believe they've come this far by now? Once known as OpenBeOS, Haiku today announced the release of the fourth alpha for Haiku R1. It seems like only yesterday when BeOS died and OpenBeOS rose form its ashes, generating a new hope among the legions of avid BeOS fans. Now, almost twelve years later, we've hit the fourth alpha.

If Haiku is as fast as BeOS was running on a 1GHz ARM chip with 512mb of RAM should be no problem.

So once R1 is out of the door ARM should be a priority IMO.

But by then we won't be using 1 GHz ARM with 512 MB of RAM.

Well, I certainly will! I think a Raspberry Pi 512MB version overclocked to 1GHz running Haiku-ARM would be nice. ;)

The BeagleBoard-XM also meets those specs, and uses a newer ARM chip that might be easier to target. There's also the PandaBoard if you want even more power.

No, I'd much rather see multi user support. I'm not planning on running it on ARM anytime soon.

Multi user support is just not BeOS though. /jk

It won't happen before R1, as R1's goal was to be on the same level as R5.03 of BeOS.
