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.

To each their own, I guess. I prefer to focus on the positive side, in that Haiku still makes progress after all these years. The quality of the nightly releases over the last year is simply amazing considering the size of the team and the struggles of recreating an entire commercial OS from scratch.

I realize that Haiku may not have as much relevance today as it did five years ago, but I have faith that the R1 version will be a viable platform for those who want something different.

On a personal level, I'm looking forward to seeing new and updated DAW software for the platform, as that was its biggest draw for me back when Be Inc. was still alive.
