BeOS & Derivatives Even more Haiku news today. Oliver Ruiz Dorantes, who will be monitoring GSoC student Salvatore Benedetto coming summer, has started work on what will become an office suite for Haiku. His blog already shows the first screenshots of the project. He is seeking for help on the project, so if you have the experience, feel free t help him out. Also, a new batch of icons has been added to Haiku.

Who mentioned widespread adoption/world domination in this thread regarding Haiku?

As you know, the BeOS 'philosophy' was all about ease of use. Talk to me about the 'ease' of configuring certain parts of any GNU/Linux distribution you care to mention. Talk to me about stability, reliability issues, re-installing Windows, failed Linux installs etc.

To my knowledge, there is not an x86 OS out there that fits your description of OS 'nirvana' unless, of course, you happen to be absorbed by fixing computers that don't work properly or have the neccessary skills to do so without thinking about it.

What you fail to mention is that one persons nirvana is anothers sh*tpit. In other word, my computing needs are different from yours. Linux...tried it, Windows, dislike it with avengeance. OSX...will never own a Mac.

Now, if 'hobbyists' like myself, wish to root for an OS like Haiku, complete with it's miniscule userbase, for a lack of satisfaction with the rest of the OS offerings out there, then Ok, I just don't see your problem. If you don't have an, interest, why even respond to the thread with nothing but sour grapes?
