BeOS & Derivatives After fixing a few specific bugs, Haiku now runs on the Asus EeePC - the 701 model, that is. "It is with great pleasure that I'm able to announce that Haiku (rev26666) runs on the Asus EeePC! I own a 701 model, and have sporadically been testing out Haiku revisions on the machine. For months I've been unable to boot Haiku, but somewhere along the line, the bug I filed got squashed, and Haiku will boot off the machine's internal 4gb fixed disk!" Wireless, LAN, and the APM do not work, but sound does thanks to the OSS driver. Installation is a tad bit complicated (it involves booting Haiku in a VM in Windows XP and copying the contents of a nightly build over to a real hardware BFS partition, and adding Haiku to the ntldr), but at least it works.

One month "late" news ;)

"Since the version rev25750 Haiku–OS (photo) is successfully loaded and works on "subnote" from Asus..."

There is one person which I know who uses Haiku on his EeePC for daily work. He says it's quite stable.

Well it's not old news if nobody knows about it :-p I wasn't aware of this article, but much of the world isn't familiar with the Russian language, and the way it's translated makes it hard to decipher the content.

Yeah. Much of the world, talks on simplifed semi-english tech-language. Much of the world, too lazy for translate something from local "other non-english countries" sites (as we do), or even learn some additional languages (as some of us do).

But no-o. Most of the world, said loud: "Quick learn 'easy english' and put away your own language. This will be better for all! Or if you dont, you just not existed!"

Sorry for that cr@p, but events like that sometimes give a real pain in the A$$ (for the rest of us).
