BeOS & Derivatives BeGeistert 019: Alphaville, was held on 10-12 October 2008 in Dusseldorf, Germany. I went along for the first time in four years and came away with a mini laptop running Haiku. BeGeistert is an event usually held in Germany for BeOS users. It's been quite some time since I last attended. Last one I was at was Begeistert012 way back in 2004.

Syllable-Haiku can co-operate in many ways and can be the new wave of OSes. Hopefully Syllable goes the uKernel way on the desktop side with Syllable on top of GenodeOS/L4 (it wil save them a lot of work). Happily they have not lost focus and they can innovate kernel/driver-wise.

Good read

Thank you for writing the report, it was very interesting to read. I'm looking forward to part two.

BTW: As soon as Rev. C is out (and proven to be more or less bug free), I'll import a Beagle Board - is Haiku compatible to ARM and this board?

Where are my Umlauts?

Great article, I wish I had been there.

And now for something completely different...

A man with a stoat through his head? :-)

Many visitors to BeGeistert enjoy a drop or two of Dusseldorf's Alt beer.

Now you know what the "Alt" key on the keyboard is for. :-)

On Saturday evening we went on a trip to a brewery at Zum Schlussel, [...]

Are there no Umlauts available? It's strange for a German to read "Dusseldorf", because this means "village of the idiots" (der Dussel = the idiot, the stupid one, in a relative harmless form); the town is called Düsseldorf (or Duesseldorf, if you've got no ü available). The same applies to Zum Schlüssel (Zum Schluessel).

There is a lot of work left for Haiku on PowerPC. It doesn't boot and lacks drivers for fundamental stuff afaik.

I'm running Zeta 1.21 on an IBM Thinkpad T40. You'll need to get a Zeta compatible wireless card, though. Everything else works.

LOL Bas de Lange and his bicycle, he's clearly a big fan of that thing...

Cool stuff going on in the area of syllable and haiku, it would indeed be cool if there is room for cooperation between the two. Looking forward to more info about that!

Haiku OS on 1000H

Nice! Your report gave me the motivation to install haiku on Asus EEEPC 1000H. I have to say that it works very well and it's very stable and responsive. I can even watch movies (without sound as my sound card is not supported ;) ). I have native screen resolution (1024x600), ethernet, usb... No wireless, bluetooth and audio. I almost could use Haiku as my main OS! ;) I congratulate all the Haiku Team. Keep the nice work. I wish I could help some way (I'm not a programmer).

Sound does work on the EeePCs with Haiku, you just need to install OSS...
