I tried it out briefly. It's an interesting concept, to have an OS with a very unified codebase at the core, and a more tightly controlled organization. My brother tried BeOS back in the day, which I never got around to. Depending on what you use your computer(s) for, Haiku might be a usable experiment for you, though if you depend on your computer for day-to-day work, Haiku might not be the best fit.

I have it on a VM, ran the earlier iteration, called BeOS on a laptop a couple of years back. Interesting little OS, almost entirely user supported, was very little commercial software released for it. It had potential, but almost all of it unrealized...

A pity, indeed. Could have a lot of potential due to its speed and reliability.

Agreed. There's still a core of users who use and support the software,
but not enough to make it an attractive prospect for commercial software development.
