WINE on HAIKU?
Nobody is going to use your platform until there's good software that runs on it, and nobody is going to write software until you have a big installed base.
Linux overcomes this barrier by supporting POSIX architecture (making easy to port software from UNIX systems) and also by supporting win32 API through WINE.
As it is declared on the home page of the project, WINE is an Open Source implementation of the Windows API on top of X, OpenGL, and Unix.
As WINE it is API Layer based on POSIX, may it be possible to make a Haiku port of it? It could bring haiku a great number of running software (including FOSS, as most of it now has it's own win32 ports).
I'm interested to hear from Haiku developers about this idea.
Thanks for your very interesting project!
