BeOS & Derivatives

Although I have been a lazy blogger lately we haven't been lazy working on our remaining tasks at all. So, unsurprisingly, since my previous post we have reached and passed a few nice milestones. The latest one is that we're finally able to build the gcc2/gcc4 hybrid Haiku images again, including all the software needed for the official release.

While that in itself isn't a particularly impressive feat - after all we were already able to build the complete gcc 2 part before - the interesting aspect is how we are doing it.

Interesting progress for Haiku.

Updating the whole OS is way more important. Manually installing every new build is tedious and ridiculous.

Why bother to update it if there's nothing to run on it? I know, it's the chicken or the egg problem......but I think more people will actually load up Haiku and try it if there's actually some apps for it and maybe even stick with it. Otherwise, what's the point? Load it up just to look at the desktop?

I don't think that's being fair to what's been done so far:

Play videos (any format), play music (any format), bit torrent downloads, download YouTube videos, a nice (but not HTML5 complete) web browser, email, instant messaging, image editing, audio editing, gcc / Bash / git / Vim / Python / autotools / IDE...

And those are all native applications, not including Qt ports.

EDIT: Flash drive support, WiFi, Java (!!), screensavers (I made one) ;) , web server...
