you want a ticket for each device that doesn't work in haiku? that would be a lot of tickets... but hey, i'll get on to it. It's kind of hard to fix things that nobody reports as not working. You are not even willing to do the work of reporting it. i just said i would get on to it, didn't i? You expect someone to write the drivers and web browsers for free for you. ...

Maybe there are other suggestions around? What should I do next? Honestly, I'd love to see you continue your work on Webkit, particularly getting things up the speed with Webkit2. To me, a browser that is on par with other modern browsers is pretty much a requirement nowadays. It would be great to get our Webkit port set up on a buildbot too as well for maintainability reasons, just so all of your current work doesn't end up going to waste. Obviously if you feel like you're getting burned out in the realm though, it wouldn't hurt to go after something else instead though. ...

in fact i stopped doing my donations to Haiku when I realized that ALL the money went into paying some guy to spend all his work on a webkit port (which seems to take forever) Both paragraphs seem contradictory to me. Are you saying webkit port is basic work, or what? no, read it again (i said two things, one being that the webkit work is just wrong prioritization.) ...

We all want to have a finished Haiku copy in our hands because of pure love and even if we could it wouldn’t be a pragmatic solution, hell not even Ubuntu is a pragmatic solution if you compare it with Windows or Mac OS X and given the current driver situation of Linux and FreeBSD we should all move to Windows and enjoy all of our hardware. ...

That's seven years ago, and I unfortunately think his assessment today would be about the same. Maybe I'm wrong, as I find it hard to figure out the actual state of Haiku. On my machine, it kinda works, but there's clearly also several critical bugs. Could someone please give the audience a rough estimate on when to expect the first release? ...
