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.

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).

Heh! Who said anything about OS of choice? You have no idea what my OS of choice is as I have yet to find a _single_ OS that fits my needs. I use three and one is GNU/Linux.

If you had read the sentence as it was intended to be read, you would be aware that the reliability, stability, re-install issues I mention are aimed at entirely at Windows, not Linux.

I stand by my bad experiences with configuring Linux _and_ failed Linux installs but you are right, this is off-topic so I won't list them here. Any amount of 'bleating' on you blog is unlikely to change my mind.

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

That's because all the GNU utilities already existed in full versions before the linux kernel ever existed. If all the Haiku people had to work on was a kernel replacement for BeOS it would be a hell of a lot more stable and quite a bit farther along.

Why can't people put ideas together properly?
