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.

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

Most probably, although I think they have more to thank to the iPod than Mac OS X.

Apple's "openness" to open standard and collaboration in some open source projects was only a matter of survival and the integration of the NeXTSTEP engineers.

I clearly remember how the company used to behave in the old days.

As they are now going back to, actually.

iPod release was post Jobs return though. Whether the iPod would have ever emerged from R&D or even been anything like it actually turned out is anyone's guess...

Damn, such a waste of wonderful opportunity.

Let's see if Microsoft is as diverse a Company in 10 years, or just sells XBox consoles.
