Hello,

I was wondering if there anyone was available to answer the questions of my last email. I'm CC'ing the 3rd Party developers mailing list.

Hello,

I'm Apollo D. Sharpe, Sr. and I've been following your project since the very beginning (the OpenBEOS days). First, I want to congratulate you guys on all of your hard work. Creating and maintaining a project of this magnitude is definitely not easy -especially to keep it going as long as you guys have, so kudos to you! I have a few questions for the leaders of your project, but I'm not exactly sure who to send them to. I don't want anyone to read anything into these questions; however they're questions that have been on my mind for the past few months, and I now have time to finally sit down and ask them. I do not intend to make either the questions nor their potential answers public. These questions are purely a way for me to get a better understanding of what's currently going on in the project. Also, I think it's only fair to mention that I was once a contributor to the Syllable project. In any case, if these questions could be reviewed and answered by as many of the project's top level maintainers and contributors as possible, I would be greatly appreciative.

 1. What is your vision of Haiku’s future?
 2. What is the specific ideal market use case for Haiku?
 3. Which use case would you be most surprised to see Haiku bring used in?
 4. Which is the best way for a third party to work with the Haiku OS:
    a) use the system as-is, b) create a distribution using your
    published distribution rules?
 5. Is Glass Elevator still a thing, or did it get scrapped?
 6. Will 64-bit Haiku become more a prominent focus than legacy Haiku
    in the near future?
 7. What are currently the biggest system gaps in Haiku’s capabilities
    as an OS?
 8. Which hardware specs would you most like to see Haiku running
    flawlessly on?
 9. Is there a projected deadline date for the release of Haiku 1.0?
10. What would it take for your project to be completely acquired by a
    commercial organization?
