💎 Mā I tried out their live USB image back in April. Amazing the progress they've been making over the years. I used ZetaOS way back...

🧐 Nrmn Years ago, yes. I think first when it was still BeOS but I gave it another try later when it became Haiku. I even tried to port some network device drivers over from Linux. Not sure if I made it but I guess not.

⚙️ Vdo Yeah many times, I also tried BeOS back then, and I loved the simplicity and the look of it. I wish there was a bigget community around it to port software to it, it could be a nice alternative to *NIX OSes.
Miso true! What OS do you currently use these days?

Miso I think it's the simplicity. Which is not quite true yet because it's a beta. I personally love the aesthetics. It's very "nostalgic-looking".

👉 Léo Years ago! I think I tried it in a VM when they released their first alpha. I remember it was pretty cool, everything that was supposed to work worked fine! Of course, I didn't really have anything to do with it and eventually just deleted the VM. What are your thoughts so far? Do you have a use case in mind?
Miso I like the simplicity and focus on personal computing. Their UX philosophy is very good as well. I don't know how different it is from BeOS. No real use-case but I'm curious to see how the experience would be if I used it more for browsing/email. Let's see :)
