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.

Why do you assume I assumed? I have actually studied and hacked on the Haiku code (mostly interested because I had intimate knowledge of the NewOS code base.)

And overall, the code quality isn't impressive. That doesn't mean it can't improve. It just means it has to be a priority.

I have already touched the security issue. Another issue for me has been SMP support (not just last weeks build - I have tried a lot of builds over time), and I have a rough idea why. The locking isn't always done properly, ...

Based on your statements, I can only assume that you have no clue what you are talking about.

If you think code quality is poor, you have no idea what code quality actually is about.

If you have found bugs, please report them properly (none of your examples has been reported as a bug so far), or provide patches to fix them.

Until then, please go trolling some place else.
