[haiku-development] [PROPOSAL] Externalize Cortex (Augustin Cavalier)

Wed, 2014-08-27 17:45
Currently, Cortex is an in-tree app [1]. With the advent of package management, there's no real reason for this, and the history of the original Cortex repo [2] was lost on import to Haiku. I propose to move Cortex to HaikuArchives and include it via a default package. I'll preserve history via git-cvsimport and then manually rebasing Haiku's patches on top of this so we get both sets of history in the new Git repo. I've already added a few Haiku developers to HaikuArchives; any others who want admin access I can do that too. ...

That would indeed solve the driver problem, but as it was mentioned earlier drivers aren't the only reason why we should consider using Linux. Even for library OS-es it taka a lot of effort to perform as good as the traditional kernels and it is rare to achieve better performance than when running without hypervisor. ...

Calm down guys ;) I think the base idea of haiku was to have a revival of the holy BeOS. But where ? - In the userland only ? to have all the cool beAps working natively linked to a libBeOs.so on an other OS or by a wrapping like a wine way ? - In the kernel land ? to have a cool OS isofunctionnal with BeOS 5 or 6 ? (I think Haiku have overtake the line, BeOS was unable to use correctly any networks as example) - In the spirit of BeInc ? have a cool OS stronger faster better easyer for the users ? ...

How does this match up with R1? Before R1 is feature complete, how does this even matter? I seem to recall that this wasn't even a necessary feature in the beginning. Time will tell. But I will tell you this -there's absolutely nothing wrong with sticking with the kernel that was worked on from the very beginning. I think a lot of you guys are being blinded by things that you don't yet have but aren't actually necessary for the feature completeness that you were originally going for. In this case, the interest seems to be in throwing away hard work that was carefully crafted from the very early days just to ...
