Re: Leaving

What on earth is all this Ying-yang yammering about?  This type of bickering gets HaikuOS no further, it
benefits no one.  It hampers morale, and slows down productivity.

If this is to do with the loss of Haikuware/Bebits, we need to stop arguing about it and simply DO something
about it.

The only question I have is WHY did he (name escapes me at the moment) take down those two sites and replace
them with some Senryu page?  What is his beef with Haiku?

I apologize

I apologize for trolling this list. I assumed that everyone just knew it was me because I always let
everyone know when I was friendly trolling. Now I just want to be clear. It was me.

So if anyone new comes by with an idea, criticism or suggestion for improvement for Haiku, you can be rest
assured that it is me and that I am only joking around. Because I am your friendly troll.

Haiku Revolution

Hello. My name is not Che Gueverra. I am not a general field marshall in the Haiku Liberation Organization.
Instead all that information is irrelevant and my other fake name is Yessir Haikufat.

The picture below looks cool.

RMLL/LSM booth and talks


I've been confirmed that we will have a booth at RMLL (the Libre
Software Meeting) that is held this year in Beauvais :

We need to be at least 2 or 3 to handle the booth from July 6th to 10th,
volunteers welcome.

I also have 2 Haiku-related talks:
- the ARM and PPC port status (hopefully we'll see some progress before
July :p)
- making Haiku accessible (as in, for disabled: screen reader,

Re: Do we need a webstore for HaikuDepot to replace HaikuWare?

What happened to HaikuWare?  It's now talking about Senryu... was it hijacked or did the guy quit or lose interest or what?

This message has already been posted to the Haiku Development Mailing List, however it turns out HaikuDepot has already been future proofed to allow for this. So it now just a question of whether this is an endeavour we want to follow.

> How it works for Ubuntu: When a user is at the Ubuntu Apps website and are visting a page for an application that they wish to download, then they can click the "Download this with the Ubuntu Software Center" button found on that page. When a user clicks on this download link,  it links to a special uniform resource identifier (for example: apt://banshee), which opens up the Ubuntu Software Center. The name of the requested package is extracted from the uniform resource name and the user can install the software (in the Ubuntu Software Center) with only a confirmation of their request.

PowerPC BeOS R5 binary compatibility?

Does Haiku maintain binary compatibility with BeOS R5 for PowerPC CPUs, or just Intel CPUs?

Some cursory searches haven’t provided a direct answer. I’m mostly interested because it would also
mean it should be possible to cross-compile… (Compiling anything on a 66 MHz BeBox feels pretty slow
these days.)
