BodyWith this article I hope to explain the basics of scripting using BeOS and how it can enhance the Haiku project. To try out several examples mentioned in this article, you'll have to download a program called hey, which enables you to script BeOS applications from a Terminal.
The program hey was developed by Atilla Mezei, an early BeOS developer, who unfortunately seems to have left the BeOS community. He created this tool to have a good testing tool when implementing scripting in BeOS applications.
BodyThe Framework If one is to believe the books and magazine articles, websites, and game developers one talks to these days, there seems to be a general consensus that the bare-metal, code-it-from-scratch mentality just doesn't cut it any longer when developing games. Software engineering practices long appreciated elsewhere in the software development world are finally making an appearance in the last bastion of the garage-hacking, caffeine-swilling coder. This is for a lot of reasons.
Virtual instances of operating systems are perfect for all kinds of testing purposes that need to be done in a safe and isolated environment. Installing Haiku in a virtual machine is a solution for people who do not want to install it on their physical computers, but wish to become familiar with it.
In this guide the Haiku operating system is being run under virtual circumstances using FreeBSD and Bhyve.

Therefore, installing Haiku in a virtual machine is an ideal solution for people who do not want to install it on their physical computers but want to become familiar with it.
The guide was tested on an Ubuntu Linux installation, but it should work on any Linux distribution that supports Xen.
Amazon Web Services (or, in short, AWS) is one of the most prominent cloud computing platforms that’s widely used both by private individuals and businesses alike. Since booting directly from an ISO file is not possible, we will have to create an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) based on a virtual appliance.
