    Wow, that was fast Michael ! Great to see updates on this OS.

      The first beta was too crash-happy on real hardware (I mean real kernel panics), and it's still nowhere near the snappiness of the original BeOS. Still nice to have though.

      But honestly I'd be more interested in an open-source OS/2 clone.

            That would be cool! At least some subtests probably would be possible =)

              Under 300MB RAM usage upon fresh install. How nice for a feature-packed desktop OS!

                Haiku is a pretty neat OS. Some of the UI things you can do with docking windows together is pretty cool.

                  Just out of curiosity, is this running on real or VM hardware?

                    VM, as for some reason it doesn't like my input devices.
