Isaid "installer, packager or application bundles". OS X has app bundles. Haiku does not. Also, OS X has an installer: Package Maker.
it'll be apackage manager that uses a bundling/dependnacy resolution setup, its being implemented now. theres also a package manager on haikuware. works halfway decent actually.
which runs on top of the kernel.No. Window managers run on top of X11.
I really wish I understood why people use linux. I mean, Look you can do anything you want on windows. Seriously, how else would anyone ever use MS office or Excel or Mediaplayer or Use a functional version of adobe flash, hell I mean its no sweat to decrypt, rencode and burn a back up DVD copy. Handy programs like 1clickDVD make it a snap.Bashing? I did not. You seem to very hostile and intolerant to people who simply don't see any point in Haiku. Yes, it's your precious. But I don't see any freaking point in it. That's not bashing. That's expressing my opinion about it. If you don't want to hear it, please, for heaven's sake, don't read it.
Wow linux is so backwards, I mean they can't even let me install the Os without having to screw with Grub. Between all the compiling and recompiling how does one ever get a functional linux system. Hlaf the time package managers break another application becuase of some lib.
Mind you, I just dished back what you've been dealing the very excited group of haiku users having been hearing from you and several others all day about the gallium port.
Maybe you should go back and reread what you said and think about it for a bit before you respond back.
