Haiku r1/b4


If you like trying other operating systems, give this one a go, I have it running on one of my desktop thin clients; it is very close to being a release candidate, in my opinion; but be warned, it is quite different.

https://www.haiku-os.org/

Edited to say that it can be run as a 'live' system, just copy to a pendrive.

I may give it a whirl. I still have Beos 5 Personal Edition on a partition of an old WinMe Desktop in the 'junk' room. Supposedly Haiku is derived from Beos but I would imagine there are many differences now.

If you liked BeOS, you'll love Haiku.

I used to be a big fan. Bought a few versions.
