I have been a fan of Haiku for years – and BeOS since way back in the 90s. I run a Haiku mirror, and try to pay attention to the project’s updates.
Today I am making available a Haiku-OSÂ r1 alpha 4.1 virtual appliance!
Download it from me hereÂ (created in VirtualBox, but in .ova format, so should work “anywhere”). Download links for current editions (for new releases of Haiku-OS) will be maintained on my Projects page.
- 1G RAM (could’ve easily gotten away with 512M or even 256M, but givenÂ everyone should have 1G free (especially if running VirtualBox), went with this size)
- 20G storage (dynamically allocated, of course), formatted BFS (because it’s better than NTFS – and doesn’t “actually” format the disk (it does, but only kinda – it’s akin to lazy zeroing in VMware)) in VMDK format (if you care)
- 2 CPUs
- 32M video memory
- network: NAT’d
Appliance [download] size :: ~250M.
