Well, OpenBeOS have finally gone live wiht their new name and website. http://www.haiku-os.org/ I wish I could say I was impressed. They have a few people making good progress, but the name really doesn’t conjure up the right image for me.

Haiku is after all one of the most rigid forms of poetry I’ve ever come across. It’s an ancient form of language that was for experts and not meant or intended to be accessible to teh average person. That said given how diverse the range of views about what constitues “proper” haiku and the needless and silly arguments about every single syllable, maybe it is appropriate?

New camera is very good and I’ve started playing with it, though not really got many pictures taken so far.
