Hi , Please find my response inline. I'd very much welcome an XFS port to Haiku! I don't see much issues in the design, as our native file system BFS is actually heavily inspired by XFS (its creator used to work on XFS for a while). ...

Hi Julian, Thank you for the link. It helped me understand the file-system stack in Haiku. I would like to get the guidance/feedbacks from the Haiku community on implementing XFS on Haiku. If the entire implementation of XFS gets ported to Haiku, it would bring in the following features- ...

It could, but Linux already does. We would need a lot of work to catchup with Linux on this (writing drivers for GPIO/SPI/etc...) and while the Haiku OS (or parts of it) might be technically appropriate, it is still out of scope for the Haiku project to work on this. Let's get it running as a Desktop OS first before we start attacking other markets? Sure, i just wanted to avoid to label those boards as geek toys : ). I ...

Hi, Talking of official fundraisers, what do you think of using something like Causes [6] to do some targeted fundraising, such as raising money to extend your paid contract? Being less abstract and more definitive, people might be more likely to donate. [Snip] That being said, I think it should be more clear that funding Haiku does ...

Maybe it's just me, but I've always preferred to have clean, unbloated OS installations instead of systems which install everything and the kitchen sink out of the box.

Can someone please volunteer some time with API docs so Mr. Skipp_OSX won't be lonely? :) And thanks, John, for working on the API docs. It might not be glamorous but it is vital for bringing in future developers. We are coming to the time when your work will pay off. Thanks, Andrew ...

The Be Book is really out of date, and the Haiku Book doesn't document all the new things introduced yet. Skipp_OSX did some work on that during the past two years but it isn't really ready for release. So at least a warning is needed next to the link to these docs. Is it online? Do you have a pointer? Can we ask Skipp_OSX to do some more? ...
