    my small foray

    i've had a few different distros of Linux... tried them all.... couldn't quite get my teeth wrapped around them... Then found BeOS5. Yeah, i know, tis not the best... but i like it. It reminds me a lot of when i used to run a Powermac 65k YEARS ago... and had mac os 7.9 on it. its so similar... it felt like an old friend...

    anyone else here use BeOS 5? i'm thinkin' of gettin' a laptop and making it one of the alternative os's, and i have a copy of BeOS 5 sitting here. any suggestions?

    What type of computer are you running it on? The site says it won't boot on anything that supports the SSE instruction set or has 1GB of RAM, unless you use a developer or max version.
    How does it perform overall? I've wanted to try it to see what it is like, but I don't want to mess up my Linux install.

    i've run it perfectly fine on every AMD system i've owned (including this current one), and i've got a friend with a PIV laptop (2.8ghz 512mb ram, has SSE) and it runs perfectly on it as well.

    only problems i've had are drivers.... its frickin' hard to get the sound card drivers to work

    It doesn't work for me. Which version do you have and where did you download it from? The one I downloaded (from bebits) just starts to load then reboots.
