Another great benefit for Haiku is that ACube Systems could sell
their computer with Haiku pre-installed. This will show Haiku to a
wider audience and it can be a nice move for the system.

What benefit? What audience? The only people interested in that machine are PPC and Amiga die-hards and server farms, and the latter two aren't interested in Haiku.

There's some curiosity about it, but that's all. Acube will not sell more machines thanks to Haiku, and Haiku will not get more users thanks to it.

Unless they drop the price to the 100 €, of course, then I could be interested in getting one :-)
