BeOS & Derivatives Some interesting tidbits from the Haiku world. Firstly, the WebKit port bounty has reached its target, meaning Ryan Leavengood can get to work. Secondly, Vasper has made huge strides in getting CUPS ported to Haiku. And on a funny note, BeOS icons were used in the "24" TV show.

Why CUPS

CUPS is not a matter of best plan, but of choice. Best plan would be to create 1000 native drivers for 1000 printers in BeOS. However porting CUPS (if possible) will bring choice of those 1000 printers a 1000 times faster... don't you think?

And open source software is all about choice...
