BeOS & Derivatives Studio33 has released part II [part I] in its series of articles looking at the current state of Haiku. "In the previous part I talked about the achievements of the Haiku Team since the project was first started, this time I will go deeper into the work that has been done lately and which parts need serious attention in the coming months." Screenshots o'plenty, boys and girls.

Sorry, this "gray area of the GPL" just doesn't exist for open source kernels with a compatible license. Even though GPL v3 is a lot more specific about this, there is nothing that would prevent anyone from relicensing the Haiku kernel under the GPL.

IOW even if shipping a kernel with GPL drivers makes the kernel GPL (in case of GPL v2, this is a possible understanding), this wouldn't be a problem; ongoing development would still be put under the MIT license, of course.
