Haiku !

Quote:
Haiku is an open source operating system currently in development designed from the ground up for desktop computing. Inspired by the Be Operating System, Haiku aims to provide users of all levels with a personal computing experience that is simple yet powerful, and void of any unnecessary complexities.
In the mid/late 90's, my most favorite operating system ever was BeOS. Hybrid, too. Same CD would install on x86 and PPC.

My love for BeOS is also why I deeply despise PalmOS to this day.

Anyhow, BeOS has been in the process of a somewhat "resurrection" over the last couple of years. After a complete rewrite, it is getting to a definite 'functional level'.
I'm actually quite impressed at how far along it is coming.

The only way to play around for now is to use a Virtual Machine.
If you use VMware, VirtualBox, Qemu, VirtualPC, LivePC, or BeBochs, go DOWNLOAD an image and play around.


Everyone loves screenshots!

I used vmware server to get it running. Looks kind of cool. But since it's not a linux distro, will it run servers like samba and apache?

I was playing some with the terminal and noticed the file structure was like linux, ie it had a /boot /etc, etc, but some commands wouldn't run, like fdisk.

No, not Linux at all. In fact, BeOS is/was meant to be a predominantly GUI OS.

There is a GUI based Disk Partition tool to create/edit partitions.
