BeOS & Derivatives Since I encountered BeOS 5 Personal Edition, my experience with BeOS PE led me to purchase the BeOS 5 Professional Edition, which I used for some years. I am not ashamed to say that I love using this OS. After the demise of Be Corp., I still used BeOS as my "main OS" since it would do everything that I needed to do, except for gaming and academic works. I closely followed all the developments of the BeOS contenders after Be's fall... Until Zeta OS became the leading standard for a short time. I purchased every Zeta OS release that YellowTab produced. It is currently my favorite BeOS version today.

The s/pre/cod/ is bit annoying but apart from this, it's very interesting to see the state of Haiku, I'm wondering though: what needs to be done so that every user don't have to chase dependency as the reviewer did?

My guess is that, at this point, they're trying to keep the base install as minimal as possible to make it as easy as possible to track down and fix bugs.

I suspect that, once Haiku gets closer to a stable release, the devs will start including more common libraries. And if not, there's always the possibility of 3rd-party distributions stepping in to fill that gap.
