Yes, haven't tried ArcaOS on it but eCS did install and everything just worked.

Setup & Installation / Re: Triple OS setup?

Not planning to triple boot or anything so this is just my observation  ;)
Successfully installed Haiku beta2 on empty primary partition (as it ran perfectly from a USB stick) but was unable to boot it directly with AiR-BOOT 1.1.4:
bios_ia32 stage1: Failed to load OS. Press any key to reboot
I believe the same error popped up when I tried AiR-BOOT on a non-OS/2 machine as well, then I just booted via GRUB. HAIKU also has its own simple bootmanager.

It's great that ArcaOS is so versatile - I still have some big box win3.x productivity software to test  ;)

Unfortunately the glossy Riot client no longer works with older web browsers like OS/2 Firefox/SeaMonkey or TenFourFox for PowerPC Macs - fortunately more lightweight web clients like work better!
