Haiku operating system

Haiku is an open source operating system currently in development that specifically targets personal computing. Inspired by the Be Operating System, Haiku aims to become a fast, efficient, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful system for computer users of all levels.

The key highlights that distinguish Haiku from other operating systems include:
  • Specific focus on personal computing
  • Custom kernel designed for responsiveness
  • Fully threaded design for great efficiency with multi-processor/core CPUs
  • Rich OO API for faster development
  • Database-like file system (OpenBFS) with support for indexed metadata
  • Unified, cohesive interface

    The above information is from the official web-site of haiku!
    Of course it is still in its alpha release but:

    The best thing is that is open source of course, so now that haiku is on its birth, it's good for any programmer put his lines on it. There are many things that haiku still doesn't support, like
    wireless WPA.
    You can find its source code on:
