@adrien: maybe it would motivate you to go ahead with development if you
knew netflix attracted 10.000 new haiku users, so you would make a larger
group happ with the work you do on the engine.

@adrien: sorry but i think you take the wrong approach.
I think I can take the approach I like because no one is paying me for this and
I do it for
my own use and enjoyment.
lets take an example: when haiku was no os
but a new type of car. As developper of the car you might say: i prefer making
this thing drive as
smoothly as possible before i add things like car audio/tb/dvd/airco etc. but
your brand is quite
nw, noboddy knows it yet and it depends on what they get if they liek it or
not. So when the
average users accepts it driving quite horrible but with nice
sound/tv/dvd-entertainment and a nice
airco, i thinkk you should decide to add that features first because that is
what the users like.
I'm working on the engine. You can work on the audio, airco, etc meanwhile. But
I'm not qualified or
interested in these parts. Why would a mechanist work on the audio system?
of course you want yor cars to drive smoothly but you can add that later.
I need the car to drive *at all*. Not smoothly. But a car without wheels and
engine is not a car.
when i talk to average
computer users(just that type that runs windows and barely knows other
operating systems exist)
when i ask them would you switch to something else, the first question is: will
netflix work, can i
watch youtube, can i play my favorite games?
i think that is what attracts average users.
We are not ready for this. We are getting things done one step at a time. And
yes, I would like to
watch youtube from Haiku too. I'm *also* an user. I have my own needs and I try
to fulfill them. If
I focused on other's needs, the OS wouldn't get more useful to me and I would
stop using it. How would
it matter to me that there are dozen people watching Netflix on Haiku then?
