Right. And that's why Haiku has so many developers?



Please, let's be civil here. There is nothing in this but sarcasm, and fairly pointless sarcasm, at that.

Linux and 3 different BSD's have lots of developers. They sure aren't flashy. The problem is convincing the target market that Haiku is viable, successful and useful. If the target market is developers, well, wouldn't developers, by definition, know how to sell to developers?
