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.

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.

Addressed it on my blog with a few recommendations I suggested might be off-topic in my previous reply along with a pic of torsmo showing uptime on my most recent Linux install: 29d, 13h, 7m.

So there’s your stability. No crashes and nearly a full month of uptime. Try that with Haiku.

What about "pre-alpha" did you not understand?

Heh, that's MY point. Isn't it rich that someone ask questions about stability, ease of use/configuration, when his OS of choice has very little of any of that yet?

Linux was way ahead of Haiku at the same stages of development (with respect to time).
