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.

I've also been using Haiku as my main OS for about two weeks now.
I'm also doing regular SVN updates/Builds locally, and Haiku today (Oct. 15) it's WAY better than the A1R1 released a month ago.
Hell, it's even got WiFI (unencrypted on Atheros), which wasn't available a month ago.
Even though it's called an Alpha release, I find it way better than may other Beta releases on other OS'es.
I guess the Alpha tag is really related to unavailability of devices supported at this time. If thing keep up developing at this pace, I wonder what Haiku will look like in six months!

Great work Haiku team, and great review Kevin!
