BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

Now, one thing i hope Haiku will fix is the crazy menu-oriented GUI of BeOS. It's nice the first couple of minutes, then your mouse arm starts to hurt...

Heard of keyboard navigation?

Yes, most novice users don't do that. Haiku is for l33ts?

Most novice users use a GUI.

Your complaint and statement seems mutually exclusive!

BeOS keyboard navigation is a joke.

That I have to agree with. At least in R5. It's pretty much *not* there.
