BeOS & Derivatives Haiku R1/Alpha 4 had a couple critical bugs that were immediately identified and resolved shortly after release. These issues affected a significant number of users, and Haiku developers felt it made sense to do an Alpha 4.1 point release to provide a better experience for subsequent user downloads. The new download links and torrents have been provided, and they encourage people to update.

Solid State Drives and Haiku

Before I download the ISO:

Can Haiku handle Solid State Drives that need some things taken care by the OS?
(like TRIM and such...)

Don't count on it. Haiku filesystem drivers are dicey things, and I wouldn't recommend subjecting an SSD to it just yet. Windows and Linux both have TRIM support on the default filesystems, so they're what I would recommend for an SSD.

We detect TRIM support... and can act on the OS TRIM SCSI request... but the other two sides of that process aren't complete ;)

I have been using a Intel SSD 80GB for over two years now. Haiku has always run great for me on my machines: Toshiba NB305, Aspire One, Toshiba Satellite C670, Compaq Desktop.

My old Dells used Compact-Flash cards with an adapter and also had no problems.

Haiku unlike Windows rarely writes to the drive if you are not saving your data/files.
