BeOS & Derivatives "Ultimately, Haiku represents a different way of viewing your personal computer. If you think that software shouldn't be riddled with bugs and incompatibilities and inefficiencies, if you hate being forced to swap out your hardware and software every few years because 'upgrades' have rendered them obsolete, and if you find that the idea of using an operating system that's fast, responsive, and simple is refreshingly novel and appealing, then maybe, just maybe, Haiku is for you." What fascinates me the most is that Haiku's not working on a tablet version. How delightfully quaint.

It's the future of yesterday's computing!

Serially, I liked BEOS, and have installed Haiku in a VM. I think it would make a great netbook! Cheerios!

On my HP Mini 210 the recent nightly builds perform very well, and the only unsupported hardware is sound, WiFi and some advanced functions of the clickpad. If I was a programmer I would work on all three issues, but instead I'm going to try to find a more compatible netbook. If that doesn't pan out I'll just wait for the issues to be fixed before running it full time. For now it's side by side with MeeGo.

I have an Asus 1000HE NetBook, maybe I'll give it a go.
