The recent release of Haiku pre-Alpha builds has finally got me motivated to give it a try on some real hardware (as opposed to a virtual machine) after nearly two years. The amount of progress is very impressive, to the point where I decided to try using Haiku instead of R5 for day-to-day tasks – with the intention of writing a semi-review based that experience (and also providing an update/follow-up to 0033’s similar article from March 2007).

It occurred to me that there are probably many others in the same boat – those who follow Haiku’s development, but haven’t had a chance to try it very often (especially on real hardware). So I’m taking requests: if there’s anything that you’d like me to test in Haiku – apps, add-ons, hacks, etc – post a comment or send an EMail to
