[haiku-development] System Soundfont (Pete Goodeve)

Hi, It seems to me that one thing that wasn't quite thought through for PM is the system soundfont (for the MidiPlayer and things).

Hi 2014-08-24 9:30 GMT+02:00 Fredrik Modéen fredrik@xxxxxxxxx: Hi I some time ago I did this clone of Haiku.

First thanks everyone for the discussion. I think at this point this discussion might be better suited to continue on the users mailing list or the forums. This is the developers list and conversations should relate to the development of Haiku. Thanks, Bryce ...

/Has it occurred to you (or Sia) that many BeOS/Haiku users use it simply because they don't want to use Linux?/ For what it matter, I agree with Apollo: I've switched to Haiku because I was frustrated by Linux and it looked like Haiku was undertaking the right path (in my opinion). ...

From: Dee Sharpe demetrioussharpe@xxxxxxxxxxxx I hate when people try to devalue a particular OS ecosystem by trying to turn that OS into something else. stop hating so much apollo :) nobody is trying to turn haiku into anything. what we have here is a separate, if related, attempt to get a beos clone up and running with drivers, quickly. no need for crazy conspiracy theories. It doesn't matter what userland you wrap it in, it's still Linux. ...

I hate when people try to devalue a particular OS ecosystem by trying to turn that OS into something else. Has it occurred to you (or Sia) that many BeOS/Haiku users use it simply because they don't want to use Linux? It's plainly obvious that his goal is to get his work to eventually replace the current kernel. Yeh, it might be tons of work that he's doing, but it's work that would eventually turn this project into something other than what it is now. If he really cared about Haiku, his solution would improve the current kernel drivers, not replace them. Would you be so calm while the future of Haiku is in the balance? Not only Haiku, but all other alternative OSes. Do you remember Be Inc.'s motto? Don't just THINK different, BE different. Linux is ...

you need to calm down Apollo. sia is offering to do tons of work. what if it turns out great? isn't that of benefit to the beos community? if not, then we move on. this doesn't affect the current Haiku project at all except spending some time on this thread. -------- Sent: Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 1:11 PM From: Dee Sharpe demetrioussharpe@xxxxxxxxxxxx To: haiku-development@xxxxxxxxxxxxx haiku-development@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [haiku-development] Re: What's the status of Haiku? ...

If we can make it so that a Haiku userland can run on a few kernels, that would be a net benefit. People could choose which system to use and which system to work on, and if in the end the Linux kernel version became most popular (probably for pragmatic reasons), then so be it, ...

BTW, there're far more impressive Unix hardware accelerated graphics stacks than what Linux is offering, so don't act as if this project would be receiving the Crown Jewels. I'm not ignorant of the Unix world. My background is Solaris FreeBSD. I see this for what it really is -the Linux mindset that the Linux kernel should replace every other kernel on the planet because it's just that good. Well, it's ok, but it doesn't fit every case you Linux guys need to get ...
