BeOS & Derivatives It seems like only yesterday when Haiku was nothing more than a mere promise. Oh how the times have changed, as evidenced by yesterday's news: Colin Guenther has ported the FreeBSD WiFi stack to Haiku, and managed to get a connection, browse the internet, and download a large file.

Now that's a wonderful news! I'm waiting anxiously for Haiku to be as stable as rock and as usable as any *BSD, or even Syllable systems. Today it isn't quite stable, but what can you expect from the system that doesn't even have an installer yet? Anyways - I really admire their work, although I think that the project suffers from lack of the secure code [not mentioning some of the services that are turned on by default]. They are good programmers and they should have known about the security being process, not a point in the future.
