Haiku … the OS (computer operating system) is not a ‘Haiku’, but rather a …
HaikuOS … Haiku-OS … Haiku_OS …
If I enter ‘Haiku’ as the search term, I get Japanese …
and ‘miss’ the OS !!!

If I need to find something, I always search on ‘haiku operating system.’ Works fine. I could probably shorten it to ‘haiku os’.

If I search for ‘windows’ I get different places that sells windows, glass, and doors.
