BeOS & Derivatives According to a news post on the Haiku project website, a new port team is being formed to bring Java technologies to the Haiku platform. The goal of the Haiku Java Team is to port OpenJDK to Haiku, and they would like to see the port included within the structure of Sun's OpenJDK project. The Haiku developers have already been in contact with members of the OpenJDK Porters Group to pursue their objective, and a formal proposal has also been submitted for consideration by the OpenJDK project. The Haiku Java Team is an initiative lead by Bryan Varner, who together with Andrew Bachmann worked on the port of Java to BeOS in the past (demo video).

Hmmm.... a bounty would be nice. A bounty paying someone to create an installer that installs Haiku (from the CD) onto a blank partition (anyone can g-parted an create a blank partition, so no need to create a partitioning tool) and installs Grub if the user wishes.

Maybe what would be best is creating an installer that formats a partition, grabs the nightly build and dumps it on the newly created partition, then install Grub if the user wishes...hmmm....

wishful thinking.... i wish i could code. ;)
