Firstly, I wanna address to Haiku, Inc. about help to X512 (Ilya Chugin). He is working hard on porting Haiku to RISC-V architecture. You always say that we have no people resources for working on Haiku. Here is a man who is burning with the idea and desire to make a complete port of Haiku to a new architecture. So why not just buy him SiFive HiFive Unmatched board and let him finish port on real hardware? You have enought money in piggy bank. I think it’s great idea and this port will make additional ad for Haiku around the world and who knows maybe somebody will join the project just thank to this.
I know that red tape and other excuses will begin now as always, so… I have plan B.
Second call is a call for Haiku community. Hey, fellows! Let’s help to Ilya to finish RISC-V port on real hardware and donate to him directly? I asked him create PayPal account for that. So here it is: PayPal.Me. Ilya can confirm that it’s his account. Let’s make good thing for Haiku and for the good man Ilya.
