BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku network stack currently under heavy development is reportedly working with the Vision IRC client. Haiku developer Axel Dörfler reports that the network stack can now successfully run the Vision IRC client (screenshot on the Haiku website). At this stage, the network still needs to be configured manually, but this can be easily done by editing a couple of files as explained here. Haiku can use BeOS network drivers, so if your NIC is not supported, you can try finding a driver on BeBits.com.

I really appreciate what these guys are getting done with this project. It seems like every few weeks there is some hurdle that they have overcome.
Keep up the good work. I look forward to running haiku in the near future.
Haiku would be great for a basic business desktop, if and when openoffice gets ported. It would be a great way to get some more use out of old equipment.
