BeOS & Derivatives "With Haiku getting closer and closer to an R1 release I think it is time for little review on the achievements of the development team in the last months. Haiku is being covered on various websites and blogs lately especially after attending SCaLE and the already famous tech talk at Google. But although it might seem that Haiku is only weeks away from the so important first release there is still a lot of work that has to be done, networking being the biggest." More here.

Steven,

"I'm not sure how flash fits into your need to be productive either, unless you happen to be a web developer? "

My personal need for FLASH is because I cannot get into certain sites without it. Go to http://www.buell.com and you won't get anywhere without flash. It seems to me there may be a way to get FireFox to spoof having FLASH available so that I could get into the site running Zeta but I have not found it. If anyone can find a solution (other than booting into Windows) to this I would be grateful.

I don't like animation on sites or video for that matter and this FLASH requirement drives me nuts.

I can surely see your point here, obviously there are a lot of broken websites using features disliked by it's users. If you're forced to use them, I can only say I'm sorry, but if you do have a choice, let their statistics show how lost they are by simply not visiting.

I do believe however there is room for flash, it can make a lovely experience on some occassions, but most of the time it's just annoying!
