[haiku-development] Re: What's the status of Haiku? (James Leone)

Whatever. Can you please get it in your head that there was and is currently no plan that R2 will drop binary compatibility? It has been mentioned to you on several occasions before. ;-) The primary architecture of Haiku can be switched. Most likely after R1. That does *not* mean we have to drop binary compatibility as well, and why would we? We can build GCC2 compatibility system libs for as long as we think it makes sense. ...

Do drive that point home, I'm currently building BeLinux on clang (it requires a patched kernel, but of course gcc can be used if you're so inclined) Does this preclude R1 userland binary compat? ...

The talk is about encouraging a *parallel* project that is likely going to take years to become usable.

It's painful to leave a huge amount of work behind in the dust, but there's still so much Haiku work that would have a great life on top of a Linux or BSD based BeOS. With all the up-sides mentioned before (busses and drivers abound!)

... Maybe Haiku could do like what the GNU project does, they have their own kernel (GNU/Hurd) but since it is still in heavy, heavy development they use the Linux kernel. I hope this reference to the GNU Hurd project's 24 year march to oblivion made the Haiku developers smile! It isn't the destination, it's the journey! Donn ...
