BeOS & Derivatives Thanks to the hard work of Google Summer of Code student Mike Smith, a set of early VirtualBox guest addition drivers are now available for the Haiku operating system. Information, source code, and a binary package can be found on the haiku-development mailing list.

Well this is pretty awesome. I'm far too lazy these days to futz around with installation media, separate boxes/keyboard/mice, bootloaders, etc. With a quad-core CPU and RAM to spare, virtualisation is the best option available to me but is hampered by hit-or-miss support for guest OSes.

This is truly great news. Let's hope now that the people who make decisions won't act sane and integrate the source code into the VirtualBox source tree.

OSnews was THE place for any BeOS news and other news at one time. Good to see the continuation of BeOS.
Think I'll go over to bebits.
