Haiku Linux

Postby dedanna1029 » 24 Apr 2020, 00:37

I think we need to have a serious discussion about this one. It's doing well on distrowatch, and is a BSD sort. I like the BSD sorts. Anyone tried it lately?

Haiku is an open-source operating system that specifically targets personal computing. Inspired by the BeOS, Haiku is fast, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful.


That, I also like. Something just for the personal users. If anyone has tried it lately, please speak up. I'm debating trying it out, but would like feedback from here.

Thanks.

I remember, just wondered if it had improved since.

WELL... first off, they don't have the md5sums of the beta posted on their site. They just have the alpha, ssooooo... I'm going to move on with EndeavorOS.
