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 do find that haiko's interface horrible, especially the short title bars

If Haiku is anything like BeOS, you can change them (BeOS had also Amiga-style, Win95-style, and some style from a *nix WM)


Overload of mouse-dragging in RISC OS wasn't irritating, BTW? (and that was in a time of ball mouses - permanently clogged if in public places ...like, for example, educational institutions)


Why should I delete my account because I disagree with you and can't see the point in haiko - what a stupid thing to say! Who said I was geek? I come here for the news beacuse I like the site, not because i'm a nerd. I have no smart phone, just have one computer (15" laptop) and don'T use consoles or tablets. But that doesn't stop me coming here.

Now, I am not saying you should delete your account, stop coming here... But you know, this is a website about operating systems; even if lately there is little activity, little niche efforts - and that exactly makes Haiku the darling of so many posters, because the project seems relatively healthy and unlikely to just die off suddenly.
