Specialized case for Haiku OS (like system76 for ubuntu)


#1

Hi,

I think that would be an awesome idea is somebody would’ve make a special case for Haiku OS. If Haiku OS stands as if in opposition to Apple, that would be a step that would accentuate the seriousness of this declaration.

What do u think?


#2

Maybe get a Sager/Clevo laptop with the no branding option and get the case laser-etched?


#3

First, it’s “Haiku” not “Haiku OS”. Unless you sell it amongst Ubuntu OS and Windows OS cases, of course :wink:

I probably wouldn’t buy one as I’m happy with my current system and usually buy used machines anyways.


#4

I do not understand what exactly that means?

What is this discussion about?

Is this about a special hardware compilation or the use of haiku in a specific application?

I think both have been discussed here in detail


#5

This is (once again) about someone wanting to buy (or sell?) a machine with Haiku preinstalled.


#6

It’s about the swag of having such a thing, maybe optimized. How much optimization opportunities there is? Would it make sense?


#7

There is not much to optimize, but ensuring a particular configuration is tested with Haiku and has no obvious problems (sound ok, no black screen on boot, network ok, etc) would be a good start. And it may save time for people trying to find a supported machine.


#8

Knowing you can get just as much performance from Haiku with your Nvidia GTX1080 as with your Windows or whatever would be really nice. Perhaps as mining machine?


#9

None of our video drivers even manages to do 3D acceleration, let alone mining. For the next few years you can forget about Haiku for these usages.
