On the other hand, it can't hurt if many people submit flyers and we can pick or merge the best ideas.

Very nice board...as suggested various times in various places, would be cool if a board like that get official Haiku support. Just wanted to suggest a company building low cost arm boards, too sad Haiku can't run on it : Maybe useful for someone which want to port Haiku on ARM. ...

Hi Adrien, BeSnow is already gone from the image. Paladin still needs a lot of work to make it better usable, however a package is already available for it and could easily be preinstalled on the install media. I know. In fact I have got to admit that I fist pumped the air back in September when I saw that you had removed BeSnow from the default image. =) [1] ...

Excerpt from Augustin Cavalier: I don't think we should remove the Demos. An IDE can easily go alongside the demos - no need to remove them, we've got plenty of space. Also, I don't think the developer tools should be included by default -- enough of our users are not developers and it's easy enough to install packages now that I say we leave the GCCs out of the release image. I can't let this go by without responding, strongly think GCC and/or llvm/clang and developer tools should be included as they are in NetBSD, FreeBSD and most ...

Hey Everyone, I've always been on the sidelines of the project, and got tipped off to this discussion by OSNews (it's been a while since I actively followed the mailing list, it's been hitting my account all along though). I've followed the project since the very start (I was an R5 Pro owner) and I've absolutely loved watching its progress over the years... I still remember running the test versions of the app server way back when it just rendered coloured rectangles and being crazy excited. I still get a thrill ...

Hi, It might pay to put your emails though something like gingersoftware.com, as I am sorry, but I could not understand a lot of what you wrote. Although I still was able to interpret some parts and agree with the sentiment to a degree. The goal should be to make Haiku OS interesting things for new users and developers. ...

@all I think the plan is not good and unrealizable. The goal should be to make Haiku OS interesting things for new users and developers. Therefore, we should rethink some things, like the compiler question (gcc2, gcc4 or LLVM / Clang). We should also make sure that the code is not overloaded are never ...
