BeOS & Derivatives Ars 'reviews' Haiku, and concludes that "at the end of the day, Haiku may not be much more than an interesting diversion, something to play with on a spare bit of hardware on a rainy afternoon just for a bit of fun. But even if it amounts to no more than that, Haiku is still worth checking out." The article is a bit scant on content, but it does give me the opportunity to link to my review of Haiku alpha 1 from 3 years ago. I try Haiku every now and then to see if that review needs an update, but it always amounts to 'it got a bit more stable' - which is fantastic, but not a reason to redo it.

A cool multimedia OS coded in C++, which wasn't another UNIX clone.

Sometiems I wonder how would Mac OS X turned out to be, if BeOS was the chosen one.

Sadly I have to agree with Ars, as I don't see anyone really willing to invest on it.

Fairly sure Apple would no longer exist as a public company.
