in July due to an attack of Real Programmer Syndrome, I started a fork of
Haiku with the aim of porting most of the userland to Linux and/or Zircon. I
planned to release it someday in the future, after summer, however today I
decided it is OK to share the code and most importantly the aims.
Sincerely I feel locked in a kernel that can't be maintained anymore without
having full time developers. The only way to ensure long life to the BeOS
heritage is ensuring an exit way.
I wish you all possible luck with your project. I am not criticizing
it in any way.
But my 2¢ worth are:
Firstly, a large part of the appeal of Haiku for me is that it is
_not_ Linux. Linux is becoming a bloated mess and I'd like to move on,
Secondly, if you had to move to a Unix kernel, then I suspect that
there are far better, more modern kernels that you could use.
Minix 3 is one, with a true microkernel design and servers in userspace.
Plan 9 is another, a far more modern successor to Unix which is
cleaner and better-designed.
Or even Redox OS, a modern microkernel Unix-like OS written in Rust:
Anything but that clunky old pile of 1990s horribleness based on a 1960s design!
