Here you will find information on how to get Haiku, by either downloading the latest official release or purchasing an installation CD from Haiku, Inc. (not yet available). The proceeds from ordering CD's will be used by Haiku, Inc. to help speed the release of Haiku R1. If you choose to download an image, please select from the list of available mirrors below.

The Anyboot image is the preferred distribution format. It can be written directly to a USB flash drive, empty disk, or written to CD/DVD media. It can also be used directly from QEMU. The ISO image can be written to CD with your usual CD burning application if you experience issues with the Anyboot image. Using the ISO image with virtualization software is strongly discouraged. The VM image is a fixed size hard disk image to be run in VMware or VirtualBox. Any of the image files can be used "live" or used to install Haiku to another disk/partition of your choice.
