    I did at one point in time in a VM years ago, not so much as of lately. Now, I am curious as to how far they have gone in their deveolopment. I will have to see if I get a chance anytime soon. :)

    I tried it out briefly. It's an interesting concept, to have an OS with a very unified codebase at the core, and a more tightly controlled organization. My brother tried BeOS back in the day, which I never got around to. Depending on what you use your computer(s) for, Haiku might be a usable experiment for you, though if you depend on your computer for day-to-day work, Haiku might not be the best fit.

    Apparently, their latest stable release was from three years ago; however, there is active development going on in spite of the stale release.

    More traction indeed would be nice.

    That old style is great and I love it.

    Anyone here ever ran Haiku?

    So, I did finally get the last nightly build from 2016-12-15 last night, and I noticed they are calling it a GCC2 Hybrid. Kind of worries me, because it implies that there is some form of a GCC kernal capable of running binaries for the *BSD and Linux flavors.

    I have downloaded one game for the BeOS, Tetris, for me to test with in both the Alpha release from 3 years ago and to the aforementioned nightly build. Tetris ran fine in the Alpha release, but not at all in the nightly build. I am not sure if the failure was from not having the needed packages or not. I hadn't dug too deep into the problem to see if I can fix it. Haiku did say that there are some packages not included with the nightly builds.

    In the nightly builds, I do like the slight change in apperance and the new
    GUI package manager, Haiku Depot. Also, one of their tweets on Twitter did say that they are able to, at least, boot to the desktop on a UEFI computer (the Macbook Air, i think, in the demo). So, they had made great strides, and I am glad they are still actively developing it to be a full-fledge operating system.

    I'm still thinking of firing it up in a KVM instance at some point. I've never run Be before, and was always intrigued by it when it and the BeBox first came out. I'm sure the advantages it had at the time have been leapfrogged by todays systems, but it was an interesting idea. Almost like scaled down Unix-like OS geared specifically for the desktop.

    Off the top of your head, do you know if this runs in virtualized environments? I was just mentioning how I was considering using it as a KVM guest. Or maybe VirtualBox.

    Chris,

    I was runing two different version of Haiku on VirtualBox. I am not sure about KVM, though. The only issue I ran into with using VirtualBox has the hypervisor for the Haiku VM was that the 3-year-old Alpha release does not have the VirtualBox Guest Additions readily available. The nightly builds do, thought, using the Haiku Depot. I noticed that the guest video driver isn't working, but I think the mouse integration does though. I never set up a share folder yet, so I really do not know if shared folders work there or not.

    As far as KVM goes, your guess is as good as mine.

    I apologize to tfurrows for jumping in before him, but it was something I knew the answer right away, and I thought that I would jump right in. :)

    That was the thing, I didn't have to compile it on the alpha release. I can try it in the nightly builds and see if it will compile it there or just error out and see if it will put a glaribgly obvious error.

    Try compiling it maybe on haiku.

    That was the thing, I didn't have to compile it on the alpha release. I can try
    it in the nightly builds and see if it will compile it there or just error out
    and see if it will put a glaribgly obvious error.

    Chris,

    I was runing two different version of Haiku on VirtualBox. I am not sure ab KVM, though. The only issue I ran into with using VirtualBox has the hypervisor for the Haiku VM was that the 3-year-old Alpha release does not h the VirtualBox Guest Additions readily available. The nightly builds do, thought, using the Haiku Depot. I noticed that the guest video driver isn't working, but I think the mouse integration does though. I never set up a sh folder yet, so I really do not know if shared folders work there or not.

    As far as KVM goes, your guess is as good as mine.

    I apologize to tfurrows for jumping in before him, but it was something I kn the answer right away, and I thought that I would jump right in. :)


    Thanks for the added details. I may try it on KVM just to see how it works. I know I won't spend a ton of time with it, but it would be nice to see what it would have been like to run Be back in the day.

    Anyone here ever ran Haiku?

    I have played around with a VM, nothing serious.

    Found it an interesting operating system though. I'd run a BBS on it if I had
    the chance :)

    I have it on a VM, ran the earlier iteration, called BeOS on a laptop a
    couple of years back. Interesting little OS, almost entirely user
    supported, was very little commercial software released for it. It had potential, but almost all of it unrealized...

    I know I'm late to the discussion, but my 2 cents..

    I ran BeOS as a desktop at work for about a year around 2000, when most of what I did (mostly dev using Emacs, mail using Pine..) was in a terminal, and the rest of the OS I used to play mp3s. Such a great OS, especially on a dual CPU box.

    I wish I had time to contribute to the Haiku project. I've only run it in a VM to play with, but nothing beyond that.

    Cooleo man. I like Haiku as it really makes the desktop more personal (the theming is great).

    A pity, indeed. Could have a lot of potential due to its speed and reliability.

    Agreed. There's still a core of users who use and support the software,
    but not enough to make it an attractive prospect for commercial software development.
