Just used a bootable #Haiku USB flash drive to wipe a Windows partition that was preventing proper imaging. No need to use the Fedora USB installer to run GParted anymore. 👍
@claudiom One of the best things about BeOS back in the day (and I hope Haiku now!) was that it could read _everything_. Any partition format, any OS's filesystem, it didn't care, it handled it all.
@claudiom The big ones back then (late 90s/early 2000s) were that it could read _both_ HFS+ _and_ NTFS -- most systems couldn't (gracefully) handle both. For example, Macs just plain couldn't deal with NTFS, Windows just plain couldn't deal with ext2 _or_ HFS+, and Linux support for both NTFS and HFS+ was really only happy read-only. Be OS just mounted all three (as well as BeFS, which I think Linux did support, but nobody else?) and kept on rocking.
@elb I remember those days well. First time I ran BeOS was version 5 Personal Edition on a Toshiba laptop. I have BeOS R5.0.3 Pro Edition on my StarMax 4000 with a PowerPC 604e. I just wish I could find working software for it.
@claudiom I have a boxed copy of "The Be OS" (as the documentation says) R4.5 for x86 in my basement, I currently have it running on a PII/350 (I think, maybe PIII/500?) dual slot 1 machine.
