It's the first time I hear that version. And I've read a few mails from Bryan himself on the subject, not some obscure OSNews comment he has made. I do not doubt that Bryan moved on to Mac OS X, but I do have a problem with automatically asserting dishonesty on Ingo's part. It's much more likely that Ingo simply didn't read that OSNews comment and went by what Bryan has been saying all the time before.No, you misunderstood me. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear. What I said has nothing to do with Ingo. I have lots of respects for everybody here. I also respect Bryan's decision to leave Haiku. I just think it would be nice from him to leave us a message, in a way we could find someone else to continue what he was doing. Nevertheless, I'm sure it's not the first time I heard about "real life issues". I'm following that java port for many years now. I remember when his HD crashed and he have lost all his work. That for me was a real "real life issue" ;) Take a look here: http://www.haikuware.com/20080912236/haiku-java-port-status-update and http://markmail.org/message/pygwpuxw5gosc52j Anyway, I think you'll agree with me that, if Ingo and me used to think Bryan have those issues, that means at least we've read the same news :) I don't want to be rude, or offend someone, neither to start a war for nothing. I'm just saying things could be more clear if we are honest with each other.
Absolutely agreed. I understand though, that it's hard for people to say when they don't want to devote their time anymore. But it would sure help to to know sooner.
