  • IsComputerOn - BeStoned Cancelled!

  • IsComputerOn - Interview With Rene Gollent.
    it a bit more seriously and at some point the main thing everyone wanted was single window At that point the main developer was still Wade Majors He originally tried to just hack single window support into Bowser itself but the number of things that didn t work right and the complexities of what needed to be dealt with were too much to do it cleanly So he took Bowser s IRC core and just started from scratch That was essentially how Vision started and after he more or less stopped using BeOS I took over it and have been maintaining it since He has still been involved in the decision making process on UI features etc He s not been gone entirely And of course he contributed the much famed l33t translation p ICO And as it stands now what could be improved in Vision What would you like to add change Rene Well what piece of software can t be improved In terms of missing features though the main things would be ignore themes in terms of colors fonts not skinning and eventually scripting but that d be a lot more complex and would take considerably more time to do than the others Particularly since I m not a student any more and as such don t have anywhere near as much free time to work on it as I once did ICO What are your opinions and views on the several ongoing projects to keep BeOS alive Namely OpenBeOS BlueEyedOS Syllable Cosmoe etc Rene Syllable I m not sure I d include in that list since it seems to be more about keeping AtheOS alive than anything else and doesn t really appear tied to any of the other Be related efforts anyhow With respect to Cosmoe in its current incarnation it sounds quite a lot like BlueEyedOS though he s changed directions a few times in the past so who knows how long it ll stay that way As for BlueEyedOS and OBOS I m kind of mixed on the one hand I think it d be a bit more productive if everyone could band together on one effort in that respect since there d be less fragmentation and probably more accomplished in less time that way but since people can t seem to agree on approaches there it seems unlikely that will ever happen Conversely I m not entirely sure I agree that straight clones of R5 are really a good idea The system is very rapidly showing its age and had tons of design flaws many of which have been pretty well documented Also with respect to bin compat I don t think that s really the right way to go either since there aren t really a huge number of apps we d lose by breaking it and the gains of actually being able to use a decent compiler would be huge in many respects Also there are a lot of things that

    from the surface of the Earth The earthbound end would be tethered to a base station probably somewhere in the middle of the Pacific ocean The other end would be attached to an orbiting object in space acting as a counterweight the momentum of which would keep the cable taut and allow vehicles to climb up and down it Brian Edwards who s been developing the concept for years says
