Senryu is meant to demonstrate Haiku's capabilities too, and I had to follow

Haiku's website talks about demonstration versions. From Haiku's website:

Promotional releases must be compiled with GCC 2.95.3, they must show the
following disclaimer in read-only form after every boot-up, and CDs must
additionally be labeled with that disclaimer: *"This promotional demo is
based on unstable pre-release Haiku code, and is intended for developers as
a technology preview. This is not the official Haiku distribution (to be
released at http://haiku-os.org)."*

I think you can't have different versions of Haiku floating around, it will
cause confusion...

I'm sure Koki will chime in on this one.
