Haiku, a desktop you can still learn from

No, you didn't steal all our ideas yet ;-)

Haiku, a free software OS, includes its own desktop, largely inspired by the BeOS. While it has a quite classic look, it still has some unique features.

Despite being 15 years old, Haiku still has some nice things to show off and inspire others.

From x-ray navigation to multithreaded-by-default applications, Haiku is meant to be responsive even on older machines.

We will also discuss how Haiku can relate to XDG standards, considering it doesn't use X11, is not a Unix clone, and also has its share of legacy.
