It's actually kinda funny how trying Haiku "for real" for the first time feels almost like trying Linux for the first time. I really like this strange feel of disinformation, things not working "yet"; The adventure of learning new cool stuff is a surprisingly cool one, sad how I last experienced this in 2009.
@redsPL excited to see someone talking about Haiku!
@jjg kinda ignited a discussion about user experience in good old BeOS on /r/retrobattlestations this morning, and thought that it would be cool to try Haiku again. As i said, cool stuff.
@redsPL it's been awhile since I tried it, do they have an ARM port yet?
also, kinda off-topic: my only problem with those kind of lappies is that they lack the TrackPoint. I somehow really like this aesthetic of laptops that kinda imitate older macbooks, but i can't stand touchpads, so they're out of the question for me :x
@redsPL Yeah the Pinebook is alright, but the trackpad is terrible, and the keyboard isn't great either.
Then again, what do you expect for under a hundo? :)
Most interesting to me is that it's mostly open-source hardware (to the extent any ARM SOC is). If the keyboard/trackpad was just a little better I'd use it all the time, but for now I fall-back to an old Thinkpad as well.
