There comes a point where you can get Haiku to the state of having 1 window, access the devel tools and a VI editor on a self-hosted partition and just let more people have a rip at improving the system.
How many guys have been beating their heads against the wall in their spare time just to get to this point? Answer: too few.
Get Haiku running with the above in Bochs, Virtual PC 2004 and/or VMWare and open up the development effort more.
No one except the insiders of Haiku development have enough of the pieces of the software to even create a reproducible, complete build.
I’ve been following the progress and enough of the pieces are there. Just collect them into something developers looking from afar can get their head around and put out a release. Haiku insiders, you’ll get more done from people you’ve never even heard of who decided to come along and help you out…just for the fun of it.
