To begin with, I’m not really a tech person, but I have been making minor repairs to my own computers for about ten or twenty years.
For the past few years I’ve been using Kubuntu as my OS, I’m relatively happy with it, but it seems like every other day I have to download large system updates which are a pain due to the slow bandwidth where I’m living. So, I dececided to take the tentative steps of looking to see if there is anything better.
Well, I downloaded Haiku, and was able to install it in virtual machine, but I don’t recall seeing an option to set up multiple user accounts during the set up process. So, my first question is, Does Haiku support multiple user login accounts, so that everyone will have their folder under home?
Also, does Haiku need to have a separate swap partition like Linux does?
Additionally, does Haiku use the ext-4 file partition type? If not, is their a utility I can use within Windows PE on a usb thumb drive, which will allow me to access files on my Haiku partition, just in case things get really screwy?
Also, is Haiku a good OS if I plan on paying bills on line, and maybe do some online banking?
Thanks for any info.
