    That's cool. Anyone tried it yet? I haven't...

    Also I noticed that this release comes approx 8 years after the project was started. Compared to Linux development (even earlier one), that's pretty slow

    It showed up on one of my Linux Format DVDs a couple months ago; I
    remember looking at it as BeOS before.

    It's fast, but one thing I noticed with the version included on my LXF
    disc was that it was missing something rather important - don't recall
    now if it was a browser or something like that.

    As such, I couldn't do very much with it.

    The latest build should have everything you need, including a ...rather
    dated but works...browser. FWIW, there is a project to create a Haiku
    native browser based on WebKit.

    Yes development is slow because the team and the community is very small in
    comparison to Linux.

    Cool, thanks for that info - I'll have to check it out. I really liked
    the boot speed in BeOS, though it isn't that significant when the system
    just runs. :-)

    I was always impressed by its media processing speed.
    Try opening like 20 windows running GL Teapot.

    Yeah, that was an impressive test to run as well. :-)
