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.

In particular, that old Compaq laptop is on its last leg, despite having an AMD64 processor and 756MB of RAM (should be more than enough to run Haiku). Modern Linux desktops (XFCE or LXDE) brings this thing to its knees, and forget about running Firefox or any WebKit-based browser (I use Netsurf on it).

My laptops don't even have knees nor legs. So at least you should be grateful yours has both.
