BeOS & Derivatives With Google Summer of Code underway for the Haiku project, the first results start coming in. The most exciting so far is the work being done on a native multi-process WebKit browser, worked on by Ryan Leavengood and GSoC student Maxime Simon. They've got an interface, and they've got most of WebKit to build.

So you could say that Tomboy is as native as it gets. But then it's also not native - it requires a CLR and thus it is not even available for all of the platforms supported by GNOME. Don't you agree that the word 'native' can cause confusion here?


Really, you're just sounding like an ass now... those who actually care know what was meant by the context in which this was used...

FWIW, I have had similar ongoing, pointless, endless discussions about "native" and what that means when discussing partially-ported software... and it just gets boring and tedious after a while.
