I've now turned my attention to preparation for beta1. Already talk has resumed on the mailing list of a tentative schedule; there still remains too much to do to expect it before the new year, but with the list of blockers now reduced effectively to two (one relating to installing source packages on the actual release image, which I intend to look into solving soon; the other is about clashing mime supertype declaration and may prove trickier to solve), the actual "release branch" is hopefully not more than a month away.

I've already begun drafting release notes and making build system cleanups as part of preparation. There is finally light at the end of the tunnel - don't give up hope yet. :)

I'm just putting it out there that if all goes according to plan, I'll be spending lots of time in a nice Haiku virtual machine over the coming weeks to get a really good look at the state of the continuation of the best operating system ever made.

It's time.

I'b excited, as I'm building a new machine this weekend to move my Win/Lin stuff to, which will free up my Thinkpad to play with this.

I purchased an EeePC 901 a few weeks ago, to replace the one i sold about 5 years ago. I think it's going to become my haiku machine ;)

Eee series used to work excellent with Haiku (HP Mini 1000 too). That was the ancient times of Alpha 4.
