    Just heard about this. R1/beta3 has been released since: https://www.haiku-os.org/get-haiku/r1beta3/release-notes/
    Anyone using it? I installed it in a VM, installation itself took about 15 seconds, I really like that :argh: So far, that is also all there is to like, as I can't get an internet connection and it is not really obvious how to open settings or any application for that matter.
    There was a discussion here but the thread is too old:

    Update: Apparently the Leaf icon was clickable :oops: and that opens the menu with also an applications menu. Changing internet settings from DHCP to static worked.
    I wanted to test Youtube because the Arstechnica article said it didn't work back then. WebPositive doesn't crash now, however I can't get past the initial cookies pop-up, because whether I decline or accept all, it tells me it can't save my preference. Otter Browser does work and also does render videos now. Falkon/Qupzilla is now also available, but after installing it cannot launch because of missing libraries.
