    1414Another goal that has driven the release of the Alpha 5 was to provide current and future Haiku developers an updated and (mostly) stable operating system to work on their software projects. Therefore we have included the basic build tools. This release of HAIKU is capable of building and running binaries using either GCC 2 or GCC 4. As this is alpha software, at this time no ABI compatibility is guaranteed with future versions of Haiku.

    1818        Haiku currently only works on x86 systems. The absolute minimum memory required to boot Haiku is 192 MB. Recommended memory for end users is 512 MB or more. Developers should have 1 GB or more. Haiku has been tested to work on CPUs as slow as a Pentium II 400 MHz, and requires as little as 700 MB of drive space.

    6767Due to size constraints of CDs, several developer related tools have been removed (e.g., hg, svn, cvs, python. They can be installed via pkgman or HaikuDepot)
