So I'm not the only one with this crashy experience If I paid $1795 or more for a compiler license and it crashed internally as often as EkoPath does, I would want a refund. No wonder they open sourced it.
Well, it certainly hasn't impressed me yet, however I am using the nightlies and I'm assuming (hoping) that the internal crashes are atleast due to them being in-development snapshots. The lack of compability is a bit more worrying though.
So you might say that GCC2 support is a good thing as it means the code is portable. Pfft netbsd still buits on GCC2 after all and its gets respect seriously don't diss an OS cause it supports MORE compilers.
I don't think NetBSD is shipping compiled with GCC 2, dude. And it only supports GCC2, it doesn't recommend it or use it by default.
I don't get any sound in VMWare. Is there some tweak I need to perform?
Ahh, I was assuming you used VirtualBox, in which Haiku Alpha runs perfectly with the host ALSA audio driver. Also the VM integrations being worked on for GSOC that I mentioned are for VirtualBox aswell. I haven't used VMWare in ages so I can't help you there.
gcc supports some constructs which are not part of 'the standards' - the gnu extensions. Nobody forces you to use them. You can happily write&compile your project without any non-standard line.
Like with Microsoft Windows? Nobody requires you to use DirectX for web apps, or Silverlight, but you can use them anyway? You know they call that shit? lock-in-product.
It is the choice of the people to use those extensions. And some people chose to use them. A lot of people actually. Might give you some food for thought.
A lot of people choose to develop for Windows. Food for thought too? I think not.
@AC: Stop being so full of shit. There is passion for better stuff (open source), concepts (like an interface and not bloody Windows 8, but fanboys were happy to keep op shitstorming about how Apple rules the world) and there are facts (things not working or breaking). It is well know that I am a FLOSS fanboy and there are countless ATi FLOSS versus nVidia closed source discussions/flamewars to sift through to prove I'm not a fan of proprietary AT ALL.
