I am curious to know how people have fared getting BeOS to work on the recent dual-core systems appearing on the market, particularly the Core Duo and Core 2 Duo chips. My reason for asking is I am planning on a major upgrade to my computing in the not-so-distant future, and wish to know what my best options are. Money is not a particularly big problem, so long as I can get hold of the parts required in the UK. It seems like the choice is between paying an awful lot for something like a dual-P3 system (which would at least guarantee hardware compatibility, but would do me no favours in terms of forward compatibility - I'm going to want to take advantage of technologies Haiku supports better than R5 did) and paying an awful lot for a dual- core or dual-dual-core system.
