When I read Haiku on the internet, I think about BeOS’s 64-bit heir, written in C++. The modular structure allows the development of individual elements in relative isolation. The system comes with a package manager based on libsolv from openSUSE. An interesting feature is that packages are not installed, but mounted read-only. The BFS file system supports metadata (extended attributes). The native WebPositive web browser is based on WebKit. The GUI does not break with the classic desk metaphor. Scheduler supports 64 cores, and future change requires simple code changes. The decision on the number of processors supported was dictated by the memory saving. POSIX support. In June 2018, the beta of the first release was released.
In the past we have very proud community. We have fought countless fanboy wars wtih GNU/Linux folks, but we blooded out ;-).
