Where are you from, Haiku / BeOS user?

My location changed from Seattle, USA to Pombal, Portugal.

At present, most days I am able to use Haiku only.

Tennessee USA location. I’ve played with BeOS and it’s variants (even PhOS) over the years and have recently found Haiku to be nearly polished enough to be my “daily driver”. Right now I run it on what was my home photo file server machine instead of one of the Linux distros. Whenever Samba becomes better I’ll actually be able to continue to serve files to Win boxes in the house. I’m waiting on an email solution to replace Thunderbird on my Win box as well that can handle my various email providers. I want to sincerely thank the developers who made all this possible. This is a great OS with so much potential. Blessings to all.

I’m living in Bergen, Norway.

I never used BeOS, but I remember very well how there was consideration for this being the replacement to the very crashy Mac OS (great UI, too many bombs :slight_smile: ) I use Debian/KDE primarily, but got interested awhile back because of a bit of faux-nostalgia and wondering about some design decisions (how much UNIX is in this non-UNIX OS? :slight_smile: ) I’ve been poking more at it lately since seeing action retro’s “could this be a daily driver” video (for me … maybe, eventually …)

Ah - Bergen is nice. I visited a few years ago. I probably would go again when I get organised enough to arrange it.

I discovered BeOS before R4, but I had no way to try it. When I got a demo of the R4 I started craving it madly, I bought the R4.5, then the 5, BeIA (with hardware) and I didn’t even miss the Zeta. I don’t use Haiku or rather, I try it periodically without ever finding it useful, today I wouldn’t know what to do with it, I prefer to use Linux. I switched to BeOS after having used everything, today the memories and nostalgia remain, but nothing more. I forgot: I’m Italian.

Like many others, I was aware of Haiku, and used it before (but never used BeOS). Since beta4 I am a regular user, with a dedicated machine running nightly builds, and updated frequently. Not exactly my daily driver, but part of my work is done on Haiku - and it does the job very well.

Yes, I’m still hoping to someday see at least one user from every country in the world :smiley:
We’re not quite there, however…
