Submission + - Haiku Releases Second Alpha of BeOS Re-Creation (

NiteMair writes: The Haiku project announces their R1 / Alpha 2 release of the open source operating system inspired by BeOS. This new release highlights basic WiFi support (currently WEP while WPA/WPA2 is still missing) and a native WebKit-based browser called WebPositive. It also improves performance and stability across the board since the previous alpha release due to many optimizations, bugfixes, and enhancements. Haiku offers an interesting desktop platform for users who want a responsive and easy system to use, it's worth a glance if you haven't checked it out yet.
