HaikuOS R1 Beta 1 Released.


Hello.

The other day I seen where the Haiku Team released a beta version last month. I thought the Release Notes sounded pretty good.

I've run it a little bit. It's seems a little faster and less buggy. It's definitely improving. With a working QT port, a lot of software is getting ported, including LibreOffice.

It's nowhere near a replacement for Linux but maybe sometime....

Has anybody else tried the latest release yet?

The Haiku project is "Inspired by BeOS" according to the home page. The 32bit version seems to be binary compatible to be able to run BeOS apps. I've never tried it though.

I tried the 64-bit (pre) beta back in April, but it was pretty flaky then - although to be fair that was on old kit (2010 I7). I'll have a look at it on a gen8 later.

Don't expect a Linux equivalent. I run mine in VB with one core and ~2gb ram allotment and it's snappy. I've been running nightly images. I tinker with it just for fun, so I've got more patience than most when running it

@jefro why is that? And is Haiku remotely close to BeOS? Just curious. BeOS was long before I started with computers.

Nah, I wasn't expecting Linux - I look at all sorts of weirdo kernels. But if a browser doesn't work, it is a seriously bad omen.

OS/2 should be re-incarnated.

I still have my boxed set of Warp - umpteen floppies. Also have an upgrade CD - but it *is* an upgrade, not a complete replacement, the floppy system has to be pre-installed first.
Until reasonably recently OS/2 still ran on the hardware console(s) of IBM mainframes...

I note another commercial successor is available - for personal use as well if you're really interested.
