Discovering Haiku OS

While searching for a linux distro to install on my old HP Laptop I came across Haiku OS. After watching a video by Distrotube (Haiku OS - What Is It?) I fell in love with the retro look of it.

Haiku is a continuation of BeOS and has been in development since 2001(!).

Once I installed it and tried to update the system, I encountered a bug where the network interface keeps connecting and disconnecting constantly, making any networking almost impossible.

It has been discovered by other users, but there does not seem to be a quick fix.

I’m going to install the latest nightly and see it if that changes anything.
