I am in the process of revitalizing an older Dell laptop, and have found that the latest Haiku beta runs pretty darn well.
Now, I have questions. Or rather, I am looking for advice on next steps.
I run a Macbook Pro for music production, and I am looking to dedicate it to this task exclusively.
For this I need Haiku to step in as the daily driver for non music tasks.
Are there any QOL apps that I ought to be looking at?
I am not afraid of using bash/pkgman if I must.
But one thing I can say for sure is that Haiku looks promising to me for reasons obvious to most of you, I would imagine. I just want a computer that is mine, single user, no logins, no accounts required, no complicated and hand holding guard rails.
Because, while I really do think my Mac is capable af there are always little things, little paper cuts, that when collected become a gaping wound.
I hate things that lock down the boot process, I’m not an idiot, I’ve been using personal computers for 40 years. Let me download whatever I wish to and risk only MY MACHINE, because it is mine.
Sorry if this got ranty, I just woke up and am working on my first cup of coffee.
Thanks to all the dev teams involved, and thanks for the users, without you and I, where would we BE?
