I feel the same way 12 years of waiting, years of almost there I recently download a nightly and while I like it, It crashes a lot. Even with all the work done on Webkit and Webpositive I can't even begin to count the number of times it has crashed. I filed some tickets and then gave up trying to use it. I too am a little confused as to what the devs want. I was always of the opinion that the goal was an OS usable by a large number of people. But over time it seems to be just a hobby OS that will never get to a finished state, kind of like Aros. ...

One I can use every day on a couple of my computers as I have a fair amount of BeOS software I'd like to use (yes, I'm getting old...) Every year, I try Haiku on actual hardware to see where it's at, and every year I'm eventually stuck. Much of the software I have never really works on Haiku. ...

There's no need for name calling, in fact it demeans yourself much more than your opponent. Also, there may be more eyes on this thread than usual since that OSNews article. We don't want people to get the wrong impression that this is how the Haiku devs discuss matters. Even more so since the offending parties are neither regulars nor actual Haiku devs... ...

Honestly, I find there is something wrong with a person complaining that his driver does not work when they have not even spent the time to report what hardware they have so others can fix it.  Lots of hardware has been added just by adding the hardware IDs to an already existing driver for that family of hardware. Depending on what NIC he has, the problem may have been fixable months/years ago. Also it does not even require programming experience to sometime patch the ...

I've read all this, considered it, and even contemplated the variables. The current Kernel is a sunk cost, it is reasonably stable, is fairly performant given its design goals and its relatively mature and properly featured for the project. I see no benefit to switching to the linux kernel. 1. Linux driver quality is spotty, period, its not a debate, some drivers are good, some are bad, and I am speaking directly about operational quality, bugs ...
