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.

While not ready yet for the mainstream, current versions are good enough to do serious Haiku programming which would tipically include looking things up on the net etc. Already a huge advantage over cross-compiling.

Besides... bug hunting should be the prime entertainment on Haiku right now - Flash videos would only distract you ;)
