I don’t understand how this works… If it’s not Linux, where does it take software from?
Haiku was inspired by BeOS, a now defunct OS which was started by a former Apple employee. There were more OS-es inspired by BeOS but Haiku is still going strong. The amount of applications is not huge compared to for example Linux, Android and other popular OS-es, but having a web browser which is in active development is a good thing. See here part of their FAQ : https://www.haiku-os.org/about/faq/#is-there-an-instant-messenger-client Another imho interesting OS to keep an eye on is Redox. https://redox-os.org/
I could be great also pointing that they (community mostly) are backporting software to the userland that has support in GNU/Linux and BSDs.
