BeOS & Derivatives As announced on the Haiku website and reported by IsComputerOn.com, Eric Petit has announced the development of a VMWare graphics driver for Haiku. Based on Be's driver sample code and code inspired by the X.org driver, Eric's driver so far implements RECT_BLIT and cursor functions (the latter are disabled as they are still buggy). The driver is already working as can be confirmed from this screenshot. On his initial post to the Haiku mailing list, Eric is asking for feedback, and has made the sources available in this tarball for those brave souls who would like to test the drivers.

Syllable has bugs. So does Haiku. Haiku has more developers, so I'd expect to see them fix more bugs quicker than Syllable. Let's also not forget that Haiku can draw on existing, debugged, working code that Be released. On Syllable we're having to write our own desktop and file manager.
