BeOS & Derivatives "So... I have finally gotten around to finishing the Haiku tutorial I set out to complete over a year ago. I was hoping to have it done sooner, but I decided to then prolong graduation for another year. However, my thesis project has been a rocking success, and you can finally see the fruits of my labors. This production should be incorporated into the project as official tutorial material." Okay so yeah it's a tad bit cheesy, but heck, it's BeOS, so shut up.

I respect the courage you display posting such a video on the internet, and the content is fairly interesting.

If I may offer some of my impressions/constructive criticism being part of the "nerd" target audience:

1) I almost reflexively closed the video after encountering the verbal and body language presentation style. (example: "I dare ya!") I'm not quite sure how to classify it, campy/weatherman/shooter mcgavin? I don't know.

2) The music transitions between scenes bring memories of my previous employer's corporate policy/sexual harrassment training videos.

HAHA... nice. Well for this production, I was limited in my selection of music since I wanted to avoid anything that was copyrighted. I found Kevin MacLeod's work to be sufficient for the task.

Sure... it's not the highest quality in the world, but I love being able to use this without going through crazy red tape.

Moral of the story? Just be glad it isn't Rebecca Black. ;)

Also... I do tend to talk with the hands a bit, and yes the presentation style is a bit energetic to say the least.

I like the intro song. Really nice sound on that lead synth.

Well... I guess they must have different nerds in different parts of this world. Our nerd group dislikes all video tours with a passion. Its the old " if we can't figure out stuff by ourselves, its crap" school. Give us hard facts, searchable, copyable and indexable. Podcasts are just as bad.
