BeOS & Derivatives I had been following the mailing list for the Haiku project the past week with growing interest. The topic of discussion? Why, the alpha release, of course! What needs to be done, who needs to prepare what, and most importantly, what schedule are they going to settle on? Well, after numerous insightful back-and-forths, the community has settled on a schedule.

RE[5]: Good and bad

AGAIN: I don't assume anything. I base my assertions on knowledge about the code, not merely the three examples of problems I gave.

I know it hurts to hear that the project you work on has problems, but I do this with the best intension.

In fact, I'm preparing a patch for a bug in the PCNet32 driver as we speak ;)

I have no problem with you saying it has problems, what I have issues with you quite unambiguously making it sound as if the code as a whole sucks while only giving vague assertions with no substance to back that up, especially when your entire backing evidence is pretty much "It doesn't work on my machine". "I'm intimately familiar with NewOS" is utterly meaningless. Given that SMP for instance works fine on my A64X2, as well as various people's Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad (and in some cases multi-Core 2 Quad), it decidedly sounds like an issue with your specific hardware, not an endemic problem of the code as a whole. If you insist otherwise, then provide details.
