BeOS & Derivatives As I drag myself from cup of coffee to cup of coffee, led by the soothing sounds of The Eagles, still recovering from last night (happy new year everyone!), it hit me that there is this thing I normally do, this website. Anyway, we've got some good Haiku news on this first day of 2010.

lol, thats awesome.

"YES! It finally crashes properly!!" ;)

I REALLY hope the PPC port gets to work on NUBUS PPC Macs and not just newer machines.

No kidding I have a powerbook 1400 (has the most awesome keyboard in the world) I wouldn't mind testing out with Haiku if a oldworld nubus port evershows up hopefully it has enough ram...


I have in fact booted a Debian potato Cd on it before (might have been sarge don't remember) so some of that code might provide some insight I do remember that the screen resolution had to be set in mac os since Linux didn't know how to control it yet.

only 60Mb ram so it would be a bit tight

I have a PowerMac 9500 that runs the last legit build of BeOS (5.03) and the leaked version (5.05 - half Dano, very buggy UI) that would love to boot in to something more modern. I also have a few Old World G3's that would like a "go" too :-)
