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.

Great report, thanks! I wish you had gone a little more into the actual "review", I know very little about BeOS, and I would like to read a little more about it before trying a install.

It's interesting to see that Flash and wi-fi are the greatest issues in a project that is so different from the usual FLOSS suspects. It shows that it's not just paranoia. these things are really inherently more complicated to deal with, and the industry made bad choices when developing them.
