Haiku is an open-source operating system that specifically targets personal computing. Inspired by the BeOS, Haiku is fast, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful.
We will be demonstrating all the neat features that makes Haiku special for us: indexed metadata in the filesystem, x-ray navigation, sliding tabs and window grouping.
We also want to hear from people testing Haiku, how it worked for them, or not. We will guide you to create bug reports.
We will walk curious people into installing Haiku in a VM or on real hardware.
And we love stories of fond memories of BeOS and how Haiku brings those back.
People interested into coding can also meet our developers, see where they can learn to program their own application, or write a recipe for HaikuPorter to port an existing one.
And you'll see the faces of some coders you maybe already know from the IRC channels.Oh, and while we won't be able to get your DVDs hand-to-hand, we still have some to ship :-)
Since last FOSDEM we had a Beta2 release last June which fixes 900 bugs from Beta1 and adds 2800 commits to it:
