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.

Fundraising 2016

Goal: $35,000


The Haiku source is continually built and released for testing purposes nearly every day. You can download and install these latest snapshots to check out the latest features and bug-fixes.

Be aware that nightly images may be unstable. Additionally, some packages included with official releases need to be installed separately.

If you're OK with this, you can find further instructions at our Nightly image page.

Google Code-In 2015 now in progress

News posted on Mon, 2015-12-07 16:15

For the sixth time Google's Code-In program attracts students of the ages 13 to 17 from all over the world to work with open source projects. Haiku is once again proud to take part and is one of 14 mentor organizations that will supply tasks and guidance. The tasks range from coding and documentation to quality assurance and research. Each task is relatively small and should be accomplished in 3 to 6 hours.

As we can (and should) add more tasks as the program moves along, suggestions are still welcome. Please use our web form.

GCI starts on the 7th of December 2015 and ends on the 25th of January 2016.
Please welcome our students in the #haiku IRC channel or the forums and help out by answering their questions if you can!

A short report of BeGeistert 029

Blog post by humdinger on Tue, 2015-11-10 18:00

BeGeistert LogoBeGeistert 029 was once more a quite small gathering, with 14 Haiku users attending, plus one father, girlfriend, wife and baby.
Puck was there the second year in a row, bringing Colin's desktop machine with him, which was left behind when Colin moved to New Zealand. (How is Colin these days?) Another new face to BeGeistert: Markus "TwoFX", one of our finalists in the Google Code-In 2014 and contributer of various patches since. He brought his girlfriend Leslie, who pleasantly doubled the number of attending females.

Hello again!

A lot has happened since last week. The DHCP bug that has been plaguing Haiku for over a month is now fixed, some various other issues have been cleared up, and the Kitchen has a lot of edge-cases fixed and properly parses dependencies.
