To answer the sixth question: that's the plan. And while using emulators is great for testing and developing, it's not a substitute for the real thing.
In fact, I have a Core 2 Duo, a Pentium 820D, a Pentium-M, a dual PIII, an Athlon XP, a PIII, and a standard P4 (with "hyper threading") to test Haiku with. Despite current AMD hardware, it's a pretty extensive test park for a single room.

Needless to say, Haiku runs on all of these machines more or less fine, also with SMP enabled. When getting closer to the first release, we'll try to make sure it will run on as many hardware as possible.

'Just wanted to say "thanks" for all you're doing with Haiku. You guys have made alot of progress in the last few months, & it's exciting to hear about the possibility of an alpha by the end of the year.

Thanks again !
