June 2008 - Michael Lotz (mlotz)He's working on many, mostly low-level, parts for Haiku. As Haiku's compiler guru he kept gcc2 usable for so long and was paving the way to the recent gcc2/4 mixture. Recently he enabled OHCI and is now working on the last missing features to complete Haiku's USB support.
more polished and smooth than we could ever have imagined.
For roughly 10 years they work hard to arrange successful events where developers and users exchange knowledge and opinions.
