Midnight Pub


Haiku


~ralfwause


Installed Haiku OS


Amazed how good it is


Never go back


----


Really: It is f***ing good! I have used Linux, OpenBSD and even Plan9 for years now and really... i have never before had this "wow, this is how an desktop os should be" feeling before (Ok, thats not completely true: The last time i had this feeling was using Windows NT 4.0)


I had dabbled into BeOS back in the 90s and early 2000, but back then the hardware support was really not that good... but now? I can only repeat myself: Its amazing good.

I have been dabbling with Haiku for the last eight years and I absolutely love it. I contributed to them during Google Code-in contest - the community is awesome.


The design and cohesivity of the environment is something I always dreamt of when on Linux... In the last couple of years, the community focused greatly on ports, and much more modern software is available - so more people could use it as a daily driver.


With a bit more of backing it could be as good or better than macOS as a common desktop OS (fun fact: Apple was in talks with Be founder to buy Be, so this could have happened!).

Wow, color me intrigued! What's the reason to use this over some random Linux distro? What got you feeling it's so amazing?

My last Haiku stint

It was almost a success

Must try it again


But yes, it's gorgeous. The installation to disk was problematic. Then email needed some teaejjbg and I messed it up. Videos wouldn't always play. But the system overall is incredible. I hope I can make it my main OS at some point as I'm mostly using the basics these days.
