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.

how is being different interesting?

Did you just ask that in public?...

And where did the poster say that "interesting" equated to "better"?

As for porting "portable" apps - you seem a little bit dense to believe that it shouldn't be difficult... Maybe it's portable to the top three operating systems out there, but that's only because many developers have made sure to keep it that way. Bringing a "portable" app to a new platform surely requires work, especially if all the libraries and dependencies it uses are not already ported to that platform as well.

It seems like instead of trolling, you should maybe be content with news about your current platform of choice. Clearly reading about different operating systems with different APIs couldn't possibly aspire to your interests.
