Nope, it’s not the latest Jimmy Dean product – it’s new piece of software that simplifies the process of installing Haiku to a USB device. Created by Fredrik Modeen, the concept is simple but quite clever: it’s a small Windows application that will download the latest Haiku disk image and copy the contents to a USB device that the user chooses.
While it’s always been simple to install Haiku from within BeOS, the process can be much more daunting for those who don’t currently use BeOS – and running Haiku in a virtual machine is much slower than using it on real hardware. Haiku on a Stick should allow many potential Haiku users to try it out on real hardware.
Update: in the comments for this post, reader “Leszek” pointed out that there is an equivalent application for Linux called “Haiku-DD” (created by the same developers behind the ZevenOS project).
