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.

I think it's that there's no simple way to deal with xz'd tarballs on Windows.

OK, so I checked and a 2 year old version of 7-Zip handles them just fine... (would be a bit weird if it didn't, since XZ appears to be a stripped down variant of 7z)
