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.

Why do we want to change the direction of Syllable? We were quite happy with the direction that AtheOS was taking, which is why Syllable is a continuation of that. There is no need to re-architecture stuff that works, but we have certainly changed the parts that didn't.

As far as I am aware we answered the question "Why?" nearly five years ago. We've has a long term roadmap we've been following almost since the creation of Syllable. Perhaps we need to make people more aware of our roadmap, but it's not that we do not have one.
