Back in 1999 I was tired of windows and the problems it had, so I experimented with Linux and BeOs.
Linux won, because it had a more "dynamic" feel to it and I've used it ever since for my work (I'm a web developer).
Now today, I'm having a REALLY hard time with Linux, mostly because of the forced UI changes.
So here I am checking out Haiku with a feeling of nostalgy... I like the clean basic UI, that's a huge plus, but I'm left to wonder: What is the spot that Haiku tries to fill in the OS market?
Can you actually do anything with it, or is it just a nice "demo" ?
All the available software seem to be dead projects or very old versions of more popular stuff from other operating systems.
Sure it's fast, but so is my 2 months old laptop with a 10 year old linux distro, with Window Maker.
I'm trying to like Haiku, but I can't see the light .... ??!
Civilized discussion please.
