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.

David's netstack was not at all thread safe and had some major issues. The devs (Axel, Oliver, Philippe, Waldemar) looked at it and decided that it would be easier to start from scratch.

As for people leaving because of the way things are run, that is just not true. David would be the only instance that I can place. Many people had real life issues, many were hired away to work on Zeta (and I don't blame them!), but if there are numbers of people who had/have an issue with the way things are run, they haven't told me about it.

If you watch our checkins, we have a lot of people checking in. Jerome, Axel, Ingo, Stippi, Oliver within the last week (from memory, so if I forgot someone, please forgive). Marcus, Philippe, DarkWyrm, Ithamar are still around and pitch in when they have time.
