BeOS & Derivatives People love screenshots. It's probably because humans are a very visually orientated species. When it comes to software, people claim to be able to judge entire products, just by looking at a few screenshots. Especially for those people: 85 screenshots of Haiku running all sorts of applications. For the people who've been living under a rock the past 5 years: Haiku is an attempt to recreate BeOS as an open source product. And for the people who don't know BeOS-- click here.

People dont understand "developers only" as an excuse for something not working correctly.
They'd leave Haiku for another while, and probably pick up SkyOS or something ;)

I completely agree with the "lets not make public releases" policy, if someone is interested enough to download an unofficial image, or build from the repo, they'll be a useful asset to Haiku - testers. Everyone else can visit the forums, gawp at the piccies, maybe donate some money to help.

I'm just trying to balance between encouraging Haiku interest, and not offending the devs. ;)
