New to haiku, what should I know?

I’m a linux and unix user, so BeOS is something foreign to me completely. I am also an amiga user, sorta, and I’d be willing to learn more systems, such as haiku.

So my question to this community is… What should I know? I do a little code here and there but I’m no developer, more a crappy hacker, and I like games as well as art (photography, use krita). What apps are available similar to linux? I noticed OpenMW on the forum… What documentation is available? Is there anything I should know hardware wise?

Thank you. *
