  • IsComputerOn - Update on the Webkit Port Status.
    for your voyeurism pleasure Regarding the complete native browser webkit bit he had this to say As you may know the renderer is an important part if not the most important part of a web browser So I think and I am pretty sure that Ryan will agree with me that we cannot incorporate WebKit in our brand new browser until it is stable enough That is why Ryan and

  • IsComputerOn - GSoC Interview: Alexey Burshtein.
    of them for almost 4 years from Jan 1999 to late 2002 while the average person escapes from this department after 8 months Since then I ve been thinking of writing a script for an IT horror movie based on the real stories but I m afraid this movie will be banned for extreme violence Anyway on one of the cold December evenings on a long and lonely shift I caught one of my colleagues running through the department with a CD in his hand The CD carried an inscription BeOS 4 5 Two weeks before that day I bought a video adapter nVideo Riva TNT2 M64 and when I was wandering the nVidia s web site in search for the drivers I noticed there were also drivers for BeOS Its logo was so attractive blue white and red It jumped to my memory at the moment I saw that inscription Surely I grabbed that CD out of my colleague s hand and copied it see at that time paying for software was for me something that happens to bad folks in Hollywood movies I installed the OS onto my computer and was amazed by the speed responsiveness quality and usability of it One of the first things I did was connect it to the University s LAN I was living in the dormitories at that time It took mere 20 seconds to accomplish this target I remember myself sitting astonished in front of the keyboard claiming it just can t be that simple In Windows 98 which was the only other OS on my computer at that time I had to reboot several times to achieve the same network connection The blue color of the desktop s background was exactly of my favorite s tint Along with shiny yellow tabs the OS immediately became my best friend In fact it was the major operating system on my computer until last autumn when it stopped booting because of some hardware changes I rarely refer to pieces of software as animated living creatures but this was one of the cases I immediately started thinking of BeOS as a pretty athletic sporty girl who wears an atractive dress who sometimes behaves silly and immature who sometimes is capricious or jealous especially when she doesn t feel enough attention i e you don t boot it for a long time but usually she s full of forgiveness and ready to help you to support you in every way she can It turns out that I m not alone and here for example in the discussion of this picture one person immediately yelled Hm Haiku it seems he also associates Haiku with a girl My point is BeOS and her derivatives are living beings just like the ships are By the way Windows is associated for me with an ugly slow heavyweight working bullock nothing more My obsession with BeOS can be judged by these facts one of the most poetic compliments I ever said to a woman was You re even better then BeOS If this does not convince you then consider this I have three cats they re named Bes Haiku and Zet guess in honor of what Since early 2000 I m a fellow participant in the Russian s BeOS community located now at http www qube ru known as Alex Hitech I ve written several programs for BeOS but usually I don t release a program until I m assured of its quality therefore my list of releases is very small Ed note Alexey here adds in a follow up e mail By the way I forgot to mention that one of the things I made for BeOS was writing a short book Immigrant s guide to BeOS previously named BeOS Bubble in honor to the BeOS Bible It covered roughly chapters 1 5 of the BeOS Bible i e description of BeOS its advantages and disadvantages installation detail cover of all programs included in BeOS and guide for connection to the Internet The book was written in Russian it was published online until very recently and was included on the BeOS Zeta expedition CD ICO How did you find out about GSoC and when were you first interested in participating Alexey Since I was watching the BeOS community from about 2000 I was well informed about the Google Summer of Code sessions during the last few years in fact since Haiku started participating in GSoC I thought of participating but that would require an approval from my managers which would not be an easy thing to get By the way developing a freeware but closed source program usually does not require any approvals the only condition is that the program should not directly compete with employer s product The problem is as follows if someone works on an Open Source project in their spare time they could accidentally learn from there a solution which they would also use later in their closed source work Bringing a GPL code into storage software would be catastrophical for my employees because due to infective behavior of GPL they would have to release the whole software of storage server under GPL license Small companies may even go bankrupt because of this Therefore every software company that develops proprietary software takes measures to prevent even accidental contacts between the employees and the open source code which was not studied by the company s lawyers It goes to extreme in some companies employees who develop an open source project sit in another building and are not allowed to contact by any means employees who work on almost same but proprietary project And that in turn means that if someone wants to work on an open source project they absolutely must verify it with their manager the manager then checks the project s description with the lawyer and it like a snowball can go up to the highest management prior to be approved Businesses do take
