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.

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.

1. My blog does allow comments. Register and you can leave comments -- just like here.

2. I stand corrected about Haiku's use of GSoC funding.

3. You can quibble over semantics all you want, but I stand by my claim that Haiku's net stack isn't functional. Is a car that can be driven five blocks at a time but then has to be pushed the rest of the trip functional? No.

4.a. My posts aren't inaccurate.
b. I have used Haiku (look -- I even have a link to it on the blog).
c. Name-calling. You can be modded down for that.
d. Competition? I use three OSes (Linux, OpenBSD, and XP). I would gladly use a fourth, fifth, sixth, etc., if it were stable, reliable, had useful apps, etc.

5. No such obsession, just a desire to protect gullible users from serious OS vulnerabilities. That's another personal attack.
