I think there is a misunderstanding: we are not talking about a Haiku demo distro, image or CD.

We are talking about a demo package with certain (email, people, audio and video) files, and perhaps queries and apps, that can be useful for the purpose demoing Haiku at conferences/shows/ug meetings, to friends at home, or to colleagues at the office.

There is absolutely no need to create yet another Haiku image/distro just for this; a ZIP package with all the demo files that people can download to their existing Haiku installation is just fine.

Could change the boot graphics to 'Haiku Demo Kit' and 'About' application and such... This is probably a definite must for something like this, to distinguish if from the official builds..

    I could take Senryu and convert it back to a Haiku disk image like
    it was before. Already contains a lot of applications that work,
    and is set up in an intuitive manner.

    Adding media to it would be easy, just tell me what you want to
    see on it, and I could probably have it done in a couple hours.

    I think along with it, you'd need to distribute a 'quick guide to
    Haiku' on the desktop...

            Well, not really : as i am a "potential" developper and as
            Jorge said, it could be an opportunity for a non
            developer. But, if we have less people at RMLL than at
            FOSDEM (i don't really hope so :-), i  will start creating
            and collecting files. I have already a few files from FOSDEM.

                I usually use this album from jamendo for my demos:
