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.

Haiku Kickstarter campaigns?

I'd love to see some crowd funding projects centred around Haiku.

I could imagine some kind of BeBox-like device for $100-$200 (so cheap hardware, Raspberry Pi with a HD and a case) or perhaps an official box set with manual for the R1 release.

I'd consider buying a modern computer custom-tailored to Haiku, especially if it had some interesting or unique feature like a row of blinking lights. ;)

Haiku already boots at least partway on the RasPi, so that's not out of the question.

I'm thinking more like Mac mini-type HaikuBox. Something like Zotac Zbox with compatible hardware and full-on multimedia capabilities.

We'd need Blinken lights, so up the cost $2 for all the green LEDs, and Orange HD activity light. Can't NOT have them. It's a requirement.

Needs something Geekport-esque as well.
