BeOS & Derivatives Every now and then, the Haiku mailing lists explode with emails about something called the distribution guidelines. The Haiku guys set up a set of guidelines with regards to use of the Haiku trademarks and logos; the "Haiku" name may not be used in the distribution's name, official trademarks and logos must be excluded, but the Haiku icons and artwork may be used. In addition to these cosmetic and trademark issues, the guidelines explain what is needed in order to receive the official "Haiku compatible" logo.

What is with people and "distributions", Linuxism's are spreading everywhere.

Listen folks, Let the "authors" maintain their project.. stop trying to bring Linuxisms into other communities.

Unlike "Linux", BSD, Solaris and Haiku have their own applications.. they're not a kernel that needs bundling with GNU crap.

Down with distributions, they're unnecessary and stupid.

I'm pretty sure that the BSD's and Solaris both use either Gnome/KDE/XFCE or some other graphical desktop. None of which are written by the BSD or Solaris communities.

So you're assertion that BSD's and Solaris use only software written for them is plain wrong. In this respect they are very similiar to Linux.

I know Haiku does write it's own software stack from the ground up IIRC, but grouping it in with BSD's and Solaris is wrong in this respect.

2007-03-14 they don't, none of them include gnome/kde or even the toolkits (gtk/qt).

They're available in the ports/packages tree, but not distributed.

Only the "distributions", like PCBSD or DesktopBSD include such things, both are distributions - which I made a point of opposing.

Xorg is an "optional" bundle, MIT licenced. ;)

Please do some research in the future.
