BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

The BeOS style multiple video demo is still VERY useful. The problem is that the purpose of this demo is misunderstood. This sort of demo is not meant to show the usefulness of Haiku, but to demonstrate the responsiveness of the system under heavy load, something which is at the heart of the Haiku user experience and that we seem to agree is a major strength of Haiku.

Look at it this way: running multiple videos w/o skipping a frame, while spinning the Teappot in a system that only has software opengl and runs in VESA mode video is a very effective way of showing how efficient Haiku is at using hardware resources. ;)
