    Perhaps... but also a complete waste of time. The problem with ARM is that is a massive time sink since there is no standard architecture, its a major annoyance even to Linux, which has a massive amount of developers on hand, while on the other hand x86 and PPC have standardized architectures allowing generic support of pretty much all boards, something which is supported as an illusion on Linux for ARM.

    In trying to find out the download size / install size (485 MB zip / ≈ 1000 MB, before 'user-additions'), I stumbled across DistroWatch's "Reader Supplied Reviews" for Haiku, which is a real 'eye-opener'. It's instructive and very informative to take a look; and remember that these are reviews of the R1 and R2 Beta versions. Very common are observations such as "...blazing fast...", "...visually stunning...", "...unbelievable on my old Intel Atom netbook...", "...great performance on my 10-year-old laptop...".

    I think I'll send them some money. This is a very small, struggling group with a dynamite product, and very dedicated. They deserve our support.

    I think this could be a nice system for older laptops, but power management aside, no proper GPU support also makes it problematic. I hope it will soon get there

    Nobody has stepped up to do the work... and until that happens, well it wont' happen unfortunately. Lots of interest though, people are willing to throw money at it myself included.
