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've got Haiku rc3 isntalled on a PC sitting right in front of me. I'm an AROS, MorphOS, and Amiga developer however. What could you put into a tutorial that could convince me to broaden my horizons?

About the only thing that Haiku has that AROS doesn't have is SMP. About all that AROS has that Haiku doesn't have is a modest bunch of old Amiga software ported to it.

Maybe you could try summarizing some of the stuff in the BeBook for me. I've skimmed it and it's nice and clean and object-oriented. Yet I've never gotten into the PE program enough to successfully make a program.

You may use these guidelines as hints in case you wish to make another tutorial.

Pe is really just a programmer's text editor - if you're looking for something more substantial that creates a template project - you might try Paladin.

Those are some great suggestions and I'll put them under advisement for a future revision. Perhaps I might make a separate video geared towards developers eventually, time permitting.

Here's a nice overview of what Haiku has to offer from a programmer's perspective:

Thanks for the article link! It seems to be something I've been looking for!
