I tried Linux, I really did, but I just couldn't get past the horrible, horrible UI in so many different programs. I'm hopeful for Haiku because it seems they really have a focus on usability; in any case, as long as my Windows stuff works in WINE it should be good.

I remember Beos and Haiku from many years ago. Be boxes etc etc. One of my old managers loved the thing, had Beos running as a media server at work.

As most things time moves on and Beos was left dead by other os's and hardware. Then I notice everyone going on about it again here so thought hmm will give it another go.

Well all I can say hasn't changed still looks the same ugly. Very buggy still. Anyway first thing I wanted to do was try browsing see if flash and stuff worked but networking was a no go. DHCP, not happening kept crashing. Finally got the static working and I could browse.

Preferences folder had a mind of it's own, one minute there nek minute empty.

So thought I'd check out some apps, same old list and nothing I'd really use everyday. Sure I can browse the net and read email but I can do that already.

One thing that was good as always with Beos is the speed, always liked that.

Anyway those that state or try to relate it to the Amiga I'm not sure how they link up. Doesn't feel like an Amiga to me.

If I looked at it from a corporate/defence force angle (I support PC's/Networks) it's fun to play with but that's about it.

Anyway back to my Amiga for some gaming, tonight some switchblade 2 :-)

Must have been 2001 the word Haiku being thrown around although it was originally openbeos. Time flies :-)

Well, if you go to the Haiku homepage it's written "Haiku R1 Alpha 3" which is nit even beta, so it can't be already a release candidate which mean a tentative build to aim GM. Kamel

I have an AMD Athlon 500 slot A machine that supprised me when it installed/ran R1A3.
It has an ATI Pro 3D card.
I am thinking of putting it back together tonight.
