BeOS & Derivatives With many recent stability fixes and other improvements by Michael Lotz (mmlr) as well as others - he was able to finally nail down a couple last minor tweaks that allowed him to checkout the Haiku source from the SVN repository, compile a raw Haiku image, and test it in QEMU entirely from his Haiku install. This is the first time ever that Haiku has reportedly 'self-hosted', an unofficial important requirement for an alpha release. Please note that there are a few technicalities to be ironed out before the process can be easily reproduced by all. Update: Please note that Haiku won't be taking over the world just yet.

The apps, in many cases, don't need to "get there". We have a full Mozilla Suite port (and all the associated applications as a result), we have streaming media and DVD players, we have a massive range of applications RISC OS never had and likely never will have - comparing apples and oranges here.

Maybe I'll write an article about dead horses (Fitz Law and 'apples and oranges') for OsNews. I'll call it 'An Orange... and why I won't be getting one.'


Or you could continue trolling with pedantic, disingenuous non sequiturs. That seems to be working well for you - and it's a whole lot easier than actually replying to any specific points.
