I will since I think Haiku is an interesting and promising OS.
However, I’ll be back regularly to see how it evolves.
Meanwhile, if the devs don’t enhance the VM tools (whatever for VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion, Virtaulbox or Parallels), I think I’ll wait few weeks, months or even years before to try to play again with Haiku.
I always do respect the dev team of any project for their efforts, but since I’m not a “coder”, I can’t spend more useful time since I don’t want to be considered as a hindrance critic of turner in round.
Anyhow, I’ll be back regularly to check the Haiku evolution since I’d like to port different tools to this amazing OS.
Just one more question: does Haiku devs plan to support the strict equivalent of the:
- “Debian” mesa-common-dev, libglu1-mesa-dev, and libasound2-dev api?
- or “CentOS and Fedora” mesa-libGLU-devel and alsa-lib-devel api?
- or “RedHat” mesa-libGLU and alsa-lib api?
If so, a amazing open source BASIC IDE (editor and compiler) plus both a real time debugger and an event driven GDE (à la Visual Basic), the three of these tools being available for Linux, OS/X and WIndows, could quickly be available for Haiku, that would drive a bunch of “Old Dos and Windows Lovers and developers” to rapidly jump, endorse and promote Haiku with a lot of applications and games.
Please, let me know and I’ll do the interface.
