BeOS & Derivatives Today marks an entire week of using Haiku as my primary operating system. This is my first PC to get the most out of any BeOS related operating system to date. My old 200MHz Toshiba ran R5 PE just fine but without any networking. My eMachine ran Zeta just fine, but once again, there were networking issues (and Zeta was pronounced dead around this time). In the age of the Internet, this pretty much forced me away from BeOS and its decendants until now.

Have to agree with you on this one. I gave it a shot on my netbook, but it's just not ready for me yet. I could do without the flash, but no flash, in progress wifi, and firefox 2.x combined just didn't cut it. I'm not even fond of using firefox 3.x with JIT for webapps compared to chromium, and 2.x was painful.

It reminds me a bit of kde 4.0. Great framework, but it needs applications to be built on it still. Better network drivers, and a webkit based browser will increase the usability by bounds.

Still not sure about the flash thing though. I mean, giving up hulu? Not a fun idea.
