Zeta "Quite a few new things are now in an alpha/beta stage for the next update of ZETA; one of them is the implementation of the latest stable version of SAMBA, v3.0.23. As you can see from the screenshot, ZETA is now 'dancing' beautifully with Linux servers." Also, Axl has posted a status update concerning networking in Haiku: "Work on the networking stack is making slow but steady progress. UDP and IPv4 protocols are mostly done, TCP can send out data, but receiving is not yet implemented."

Answer is very simple.

Google summer of code isn't really charity. It is an attempt by Google to help develop projects that could undermine the MS monopoly. In the view of people in charge behind SoC, Haiku is too 'alternative' to have an impact on MS's monopoly. If I where in charge of Soc, I also wouldn't spend any resources on Haiku, I would focus on Linux and maybe BSD.

P.S. I can't wait to try a Haiku release and I think the concepts behind BeOS where pretty cool. I thinking from a business point of view above.
