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.

playing devil's advocate, Mozilla was in a slightly different position as it could be installed along side IE without having to reboot or do anything else with the computer.

Which is not to say that it's not a great OS, as i too was blown away by BE R5 at the speed and layout of the UI.Im currently downloading the alpha to, which from screen shots and reviews hints at something which is classed as a beta with other OS's/Software
