Sorry if some have ben answered elsewhere.
- Will haiku look as good as Mac Os X?
- Will haiku be easier to use than windows?
- Will haiku run all open source programs when compiled?
- Will haiku be as good as linux at hardware detection?
- Will haiku be as stable as linux?
- Will haiku be a replacement for windows, mac or linux?
It can be all them if you want it too. :lol:
- Gui will be like BeOS 5 initially. Depends if skinning is added afterwards.
- subjective question.
- no that’s impossible with out some programs requiring changes.
- linux is good at hardware detection? lol
- Linux stable, depends what it is? Subjective question…
- just as much as anything else is.
Another reason why we really need a Current State FAQ. If I keep mentioning this I might have to get off of my ass and make one myself.
- Beauty is subjective. I think that BeOS R5 is already more visually appealing than OS X in many ways, not as in a few.
- Ease of use depends on the user. I work with many people for whom a stapler is baffling.
- No, that’s impossible. Just because they are open source doesn’t mean they will run everywhere. Open source projects, just like all software, have to be designed to run in a certain environment. Some will work on multiple OSes and others just one.
- Probably not at first.
- More stable than X, less stable than a well configured kernel.
- Again, that is subjective. If you want to check your e-mail, then yes. If you want to use Photoshop, then no.
You mean this …
Whilst we don’t compare our OS against others in the FAQ, I think it does answer enough for people to get a grasp of the project and then to contribute.
If there is something you would like added to the FAQ, please do not hestitate to contact myself or Kurtis.
I should write that down somewhere. I didn’t see anything on there about the look of the OS. A lot of people want to know if it will support skins or look like OS X or fully support Alpha…
