ExplainingComputers: Haiku Alternative Operating System

Check out this new video by ExplainingComputers!

Haiku is an open source operating system inspired by BeOS. In this video I download and demonstrate the Haiku R1/beta1 using a live USB drive, as well a VirtualBox install in which I run applications including Libre Office and Krita.

The Haiku website it at: ift.tt/Vo7REN

The Etcher website (used in the video to write Haiku to a USB drive) is at: etcher.io/

My video on the Krita paint program shown in the video is here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=fX3c2wQYX6I

If you want to install Haiku in VirtualBox, you may find useful my video “Setting Up a Virtual Machine”: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyi-NuqiLr0

When creating a new VirtualBox machine for Haiku, set the ‘Type” as “Other” and the “Version” as “Other/Unknown (64-bit)” — assuming that you have downloaded the 64-bit version of Haiku. Ideally allocate 2GB or more of memory, and create a dynamic virtual hard disk of 4GB or more in size (I used a 6GB virtual drive in the video). Note that before you start you will need to unzip the Haiku download file to extract the ISO needed to set up your VirtualBox install. Note also that there are no Guest Additions for Haiku, which will limit your choice of screen resolutions. Good luck! 🙂
