I've started to compile a list of questions being asked on the #haiku irc channel since 2009-09-12. Most have been asked dozens of times. I believe that the general and dev FAQ's should be expanded to address some of the the following, even if it is to just add a link to already existing documentation on the site.
The following are only a few of the many questions asked:
Can I use Haiku as my primary Operating System? Is there an instant messenger client? Is there a package manager? Is there going to be one? How do I update my installation of Haiku? Is there an updater? Where can I get more software for Haiku? Are there any games for Haiku? Is there Java support. Is there Flash support? Is there a future release road map? When is the next release? Why use GCC2? Is there GCC4 support? How do I use the different GCC version. What graphic cards are supported? How do I get widescreen resolution on my monitor? VESA? How do I install to a USB stick? Now that I have Haiku on a USB disk, how do I install Haiku to my system? I have VirtualBox. Which image should I use? Can Haiku connect to the Internet? How come there is no sound? Why is there no network access in VirtualBox? Is there an office suite? What is Kernel Debugging Land? Why doesn't the 'tilda' key work properly? How do I change my keyboard layout? How do I know if I'm under VESA or native driver? Can vesa can do widescreen resolutions? Is there a list of working hardware? Is there python, ruby, perl? What is the status of wireless internet connections? does F12 not take me into KDL anymore? Is the live cd image of haiku going to be installable? Is there multiple monitor support? How much space is needed to build Haiku? Will Gobe Productive work in Haiku? Is there some kind of failsafe mode I can boot into? How do I get to it?
