Hands-on: Haiku, the future of BeOS, is pure poetry

,----[ Quote ]
| In the spirit of BeOS, Haiku's boot performance is very 
| good. In my tests, I got from the startup splash screen 
| to a fully usable desktop in roughly four seconds. This 
| is one of Haiku's strengths relative to modern 
| operating systems and it is the envy of prominent Linux 
| distributions that are ambitiously aiming for similarly 
| fast startup.

| Two things about Haiku stand in stark contrast to Linux. The first is
| the licensing -- it's far more liberally licensed than Linux, and so
| lends itself to being shaped and implemented in far broader ways. The
| other is how Haiku is developed -- as a total desktop stack, rather
| than a kernel plus userland tools plus windowing system plus window
| manager, etc., etc. It's already made a great deal of difference in
| terms of the way the whole thing feels and works. It embodies
| elegance, even if some of the individual windowing/UI metaphors are a
| bit aged and could use some slicking-up.

| This will help the Haiku development team identify and address bugs, and thus
| improve the quality of the system as development keeps advancing towards the
| subsequent development milestones. Bugs found in Alpha 1 should be reported to
| the Haiku bug tracking system at http://dev.haiku-os.org.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
