@lexo Not sure if it supports the out of box OEM wifi card. Im running a card I swapped in a while back. Im also running coreboot. But I suspect Haiku doesn't care about that.
Does natively support sound, GPU and ethernet on the X230t and basic ACPI.
Haven't tried the digitizer.
@wezm It's snappy. It *feels* like BeOS if you ever ran that before. The whole thing is light and responsive. It has a way of letting the OS continue to feel responsive and snappy even if an app has run away with the rest of the CPU.
It's native webkit based browser chokes on anything too complex though. They have Otter Browser available and it's quite a bit better. They could still benefit from Firefox. But I could get a lot done in Otter Browser I think.
@wezm With both Libre Office and Caligra Office their good in terms of office software. Didn't see any calendaring apps available. Which is sad, I consider caldav kind of a requirement these days.
It's still a single user OS though with all the security that implies; and its in bad need of a NextCloud or SyncThing client or something of the like.
@wezm they had a personal edition for free and a pro for purchase. I *think* personal edition was limited in installation size.
@trashHeap @wezm There's no technical feature the OS lacks for Firefox; it's just that porting Firefox to a new platform is an absolutely massive effort nobody has wanted to undertake. If someone with the requisite expertise does, more than happy to assist. Improving the WebKit port is probably easier in the short term.
In it's race to compete with Chrome it has gotten even heavier and more complex to port from what I gather; and it was never trivial tobegin with back in the BeZilla days.
I have a lot of Nostalgia for BeOS honestly; and the project is clearly in a state where I can use it for a lot of day to day tasls.
The next time you guys cut a stable or semi-stable release, I might have to consider a permanent install on some piece of hardware long term.
In fact I kind of pray your arm port eventually gets running on a PineBook Pro via @PINE64 . That honestly would be impossible to resist.
