BeOS & Derivatives "Haiku, the open source re-creation of BeOS, threatens to become 'The Duke Nukem of operating systems', joked long-time contributor Ryan Leavengood. Actually, after eleven years of development, Haiku still falls four years short of Duke Nukem Forever's long delay, but few other projects have been so long in development. However, with the recent release of Alpha 4.1, Haiku is at last nearing general release." 2013 is going to be very exciting for Haiku.

The main difference between Haiku and Duke Nukem Forever is that the former has given us code to run (and even contribute to!) all along, while the latter was nothing but screenshots and promises. It's not even close.


And how much of 3DRealms money was dumped on the latter before they finally had to sell the ship?

I know for a fact that if that money went to Haiku, we'd have more to show now than some over-hyped mediocre game.
