    Haiku OS:
    About two years ago I read the book “In the Beginning was the Command Line”, by Neal Stephenson. It is a funny essay from 1999, and can be found free to download on internet. Not at least he talks about BeOS, and I quote: “The ideal OS for me would be one that had a well-designed GUI that was easy to set up and use, but that included terminal windows where I could revert to the command line interface, and run GNU software, when it made sense. A few years ago, Be Inc. invented exactly that OS. It is called the BeOS.”
    As Haiku is “inspired” by BeOS I became curious in Haiku after reading the book. I flashed a USB with the Beta 2 ISO as well as the at the time latest nightly build. I tried several times on a Lenovo IdeaPad 100S-14IBR and a ThinkPad T430S. The boot process never completed. I did some research but not that deep.

    I tweeted with Moss recently; he has also given it some attempts with same result as for me.

    Beta 3 was released earlier this summer and I gave it a try today. To my surprise, Haiku started on both machines above! Wifi-connection was no issue. I played a couple of minutes with the live-USB tonight, checked the depot, started to read the introduction guide. I am inspired to look more into it. Not that it is a ready OS like eg Mint. But it is cool it exist and is in active development.

    I am happy to hear if you give it a try. And of course if Distrohoppers test it as well.

    Debian 11 Bullseye:
    I also enjoyed your innards about Debian 11 Bullseye (and LMDE). I installed the Cinnamon version, and yes it is Cinnamon 4. I still prefer Mint, but Debian is indeed an OS to trust upon, and who knows, I may use it more daily one day.
