I think the current problems are a) stability and b) robustness of the 
implementation. By the later, I mean that there is lots of ways to do the 
same thing using the APIs. All of them need to work, not just a few, so 
that much more apps work (and display) fine. Than, pretty much anything is 
possible as a demo. In one month, there is a good chance that Tracker and 
Deskbar will work quite well, which is of course one of the nicest demos 
there can be for the Haiku project. :-)

Hm... missing parts... Of course one good way to see what's missing and 
where to help is to simply try some random app under Haiku and investigate 
the cause of something not working. The BPicture support should be broken 
right now, maybe some particular apps don't work because of that. But I'm 
sure there is more.

Also, there is lot's of TODOs in the code about loading and saving setting 
files for various things. Fonts and Screen prefs are the most obvious.

Best regards,
