"With all the publicity that Windows and Linux get, you may be forgiven for not being aware of a number of other operating systems. Yet there are many other choices that I find interesting and as useful alternatives." The Byte Magazine article goes on to discuss OS/2, BeOS and the Amiga, amongst others.

In reply to Comment 18 (cOrpse):
If the IDE controller is built-in to your motherboard, then it should just get handled as 'native' (no additional setup/drivers required).
However, the IDE replacement driver on BeBits (as referred to by the previous comment), which provides support for ATA100, command queuing, and other newer IDE tech - also gives significant speed benefits.
Its one of my 'must have' components for a fresh BeOS install...
