    I wonder if Haiku will bring along any of its BeOS Power platform roots?

    The original BeBox with BeOS was a dual socket Power 603-66 and they showed a 4 socket model privately. (it was later ported to the PowerMac)

    Can you see a dual socket Raptor Talos running Haiku? Just curious.

    It would be an interesting product coming full circle.

    The developers remain though as busy as ever with advancing this interesting open-source project.
    "though" makes no sense within the context of that sentence.

    I think Linux and MacOS are large enough and dominant in certain markets that they could be called mainstream, but yes Windows is really the 'culture' of IT these days and I love dabbling with the alternatives even if they don't end up replacing my workhorse.

    Thinking about it. They probably have a better chance getting done before X is replaced with wayland!

    Linux is getting very fragmented and bulky. Rather amazing it works as well as it does. Love haiku though. Very well planned and executed desktop environment. Perhaps a little dated look for those that like all that. But it is a matter of preference
