Apple To Distribute OS X Lion via the Mac App Store

drkamil Re:Macs will be a closed platform in the end (517 comments)

I don't quite understand why everyone is bashing apple for making it's mac line more and more user friendly. while keeping all the power users happy with the xcode ide, python/perl/ruby/gcc/vi/emacs preinstalled and several paket managers available (and a posix standard unix base), i see no problem in making some aspects more like an appliance, if you WANT you still CAN compile your applications from source.

Slashdot Launches Re-Design

drkamil vertical space is more important than horizontal (2254 comments)

can't you move the top bar to the side? like said before scrolling with space bar is now a PITA and most of us have widescreen displays, i don't need 700+ pixels width full of text, it would be better IMHO to move the bar to the right...

Haiku Project released Alpha 2

drkamil drkamil writes  |  more than 4 years ago

drkamil (1242294) writes "The BeOs-inspired Haiku Project announced on sunday the release of Haiku R1 Alpha 2, with over 300 fixed bugs.
From the main site:
The Haiku Project is proud to announce the availability of Haiku R1A2, its second official alpha release. Haiku is an open source operating system that specifically targets personal computing intended for desktop use. Alpha 2 is a stable development release and a milestone on the way to the upcoming Release 1.

After testing the first Alpha i was surprised by the concepts and very pleased about the "haiku experience", possibly because i never had a chance to try BeOs.
I hope the team keeps its good work up so i can use Haiku as my main OS one day, it's unbelievable fast."
