Linux desktops are horrible even on large displays...

(I’m currently playing a bit with CDE again, though. Not bad, not bad at all.)

I have a feeling you gentlemen might already know about Plan9 on Raspberry Pi, but just thought I'd share a link to a video I saw on it....

In fact, I had bought a RPi just for that.

Somewhat surprisingly, I'm posting this from WebPositive on Haiku. The latest beta runs really well on my ThinkPad T61.

Dude, I am on a Mac... iMac. But, I am working on getting off the Mac and onto a Linux distro...! Many folks have given me good ideas here.

I finally solved my backup problem. I now backup my iMac internal disk to an external USB Western Digital Passport 3 TB drive using rsync. I reformatted my Western Digital drive to use ExFAT file systems. I even wrote a shell script to avoid making mistakes omitting rsync command line options. So now the contents thereon are portable to Linux.

Now I'm working on selecting a distro. Hopefully soon off Apple forever....

No suprise to me, I've been tinkering with this os for quite a while and it has improved a lot in stability and usability. Haiku is my favorite open non-Linux OS.

Webpositive has seen a huge amount of work recently. Haven't tried any of the ported QT browsers yet have you? I also seen where a GTK port was progressing rather well, That should make porting Firefox and GIMP a little easier.

What a disapointment, I'd much rather see the Haiku logo. I remember posting here a long time ago and LQ didn't recognise the OS. I'm posting this from beta1.

I was a huge BeOS fan back in the day, ran it on dedicated hardware, had the BeOS Bible by Scot Hacker, etc. The progress with Haiku is excellent, brings back that old BeOS magic! Although I do wish they would implement a secure multi-user system. Otherwise I could use it for everything I currently use Linux on the laptop for.

Hey Jeremy, any way to fix it so LQ recognizes Haiku properly?

I checked with an online browser checker and they knew it was Haiku right away. Here is the User Agent
Code:
Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Haiku R1 x86) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) WebPositive/1.2 Version/13 Safari/605.1.15
I might need to try that with 9Front...

9front browsers are not detected by the checker I was using. I think a person can specify a useragent when starting webfs but it woulldn't improve the browsing experience any Posting this from Abaco on 9front.

So back too the original post. Built Netsurf, I thought it didn't support network yet. However i am posting from it on 9Front right now. It's sluggish but the rendering is many, many times better than any other browser that runs on plan9. This is a huge game changer for plan9.

Did anybody else try it yet? https://github.com/netsurf-plan9/nsport

I saw an article a while back about Google's plans to phase out the user agent string in Chrome.
https://tinyurl.com/t2gcnl7

This could have potentially far-reaching implications and impact on the entire browser/server ecosystem. Both browser and server-side software (HTTP servers) would change over time. I'm sure there would be a long period to phase out the user agent string. But, potentially, every browser would have to follow suit.

I haven't encountered any articles about standards efforts in this area. Google might end up creating a de facto standard. I haven't spent a lot of time researching. Just thought I would post this upon seeing the latest posts in this thread....
