There's more to Haiku than nice code. If haiku is a unified system then we
can expect an easier experience for users and better OS for
developers--->really good apps. That's really the bottom line. If your new
distro 'improves' haiku it won't matter because you'll just end up playing
with empty tracker windows since nobody will want to support a mess.
