BeOS & Derivatives Today there are many operating systems available. Every vendor or community round it tries to make it as good as possible. Having different goals, different legacy and different cultures, they succeed in it more or less. We (end users) end up with big selection of operating systems, but for us the operating systems are usually compromise of the features that we would like to have. So is there an operating system that would fit all the needs of the end user? Is is the BeOS clone Haiku?

Do packages actually work?

Member since:

I've installed this and the default install runs well. So, I decided to test run this for use of normal everyday work.

Now, I read that any packages are just downloaded and expanded to /boot/apps
Doing that, nothing works. I've tried pixel, besol, and BeRDP, and nothing seems to work. Just crashes, and debugging messages.

What am I doing wrong?
