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.

Did you have anything substantive to add to the discussion?


You've done a pretty good job of ensuring that the "discussion" is not worth contributing to in any serious way. It's also painfully evident, based on the numerous infantile cheapshots you've posted in this thread, that you yourself have absolutely no interest in anything resembling adult discourse (the bitter rants on your blog are ample proof of that).

If you so long for substantive discussion, then perhaps you ought to offer some actual substantive criticism - as opposed to the juvenile mudslinging and bitter rants you've posted here and on your blog. So far, you don't appear to be doing anything other than cherry-picking the most obviously-false claims related to Haiku and then using those claims to draw generalized, disingenuous conclusions. In other words, pretty much the exact opposite of the actions that one takes when they're interested in rational, adult discussion.

So that's a no then. What are the rules here again about personal attacks? I've addressed some pretty serious shortcomings of an OS, not made personal statements about individuals like you have.

Want more shortcomings? How about the fact that Haiku pays homage to Win95 in being available only for single user? How about the (in)security issues R1 will be plagued with because of that AND the fact that it lacks any protection via permission levels -- something even MS finally/reluctantly addressed in NT/ME/XP/Vista by adding an administrator level?

Any remote/local attack could relinquish full use of the computer on which Haiku is installed to a hacker. Unlikely? Then how many BeOS vulnerabilities will carry over to Haiku? How many new ones will there be?

Good thing it doesn't take long to boot Haiku -- you're already in good practice for trying to reclaim your computer from 10 year-old Lithuanians.

Edit: While I'm on the subject of security, can you still call delete_area() universally in Haiku?

Considering your blog, where you're posting an obsessive level of FUD, doesn't have a comments facility I'll just have to respond to some of your crap here

You claim that GSoC resources are being used to write a word processor - they're not. The person working on one is coincidentally a GSoC mentor - this does not mean that any Google resources are being used.

You claim that Haiku hasn't got a functional net stack - it has. It hasn't got a stable net stack, but thats something entirely different.

Based on you making two inaccuracy-laden posts in one day about an OS I doubt you're ever likely to use, about all one can take from that is that you're a vindicative little child, worried that competition to whatever OS it is you love is a bad thing.

You also have an unhealthy obsession with Baltic teenagers. Think you might need to keep this in check.
