BeOS & Derivatives "It looks like the Haiku Webkit port initiated by Ryan Leavengood has entered a productive second stage of development, and thanks to the recent work by one of the new project team members, Andrea 'xeD' Anzani, tangible progress has been made as shown by the recent screenshot showing the HaikuLauncher application rendering bebits.com. I was curious about his work, so I went directly to the source and asked a few questions to Andrea; here are his answers." On a related note, Haiku now has a new nightly build archive.

What's up with the "snow" animation on the Haiku website?

Yeah it's really, really annoying... I'm trying to find out who added it on #haiku and see if they can restrict the animation to the header img or something, as it makes reading the text quite annoying at the moment :/.

Ah, so you are not using NoScript, then ;)

What version of Bah Humbug are you using? ;-)

Looking forward to this. I've just spent the morning trying to get the BONE version of Firefox running on my Haiku partition. I've edited UserSetupEnvironment but it's moaning about .so.stub files. And of course, I hear it doesn't run for long even when it runs...

Sent the processor to 100% and made the machine unresponsive on Konqueror.

Sidenote: That's funny. I keep hearing how platforms utilizing Konqueror for instance has been ready for the desktop for years, and now I hear that rendering a normal website is a problem. Wow, that's amazing!

Gee, guess 2k8 will also be a year of the rumours of "being ready"....

Mainnote: It's great seeing options and improvements happening all over the place in the Haiku world. I personally would've hoped to see Alpha R1 before Christmas, but that didn't happen. Anyway, you can't have it all, and concluding that it won't happen in 2k7, I'm more sure than ever that Haiku will start pondering Alphas under 2k8. Meaning basically, it'll be the year where a real Win/Osx alternative was born, even though it will take plenty of more years for maturity!
