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.

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...

I think in the end it was actually NeXTSTEP that bought Apple and not the other way around.

If it wasn't for him, Apple would most likely be gone, taking into consideration how tiny the European market was in the late 90's. In Portugal there were a few LCs in the universities and that was about it.
