BeOS & Derivatives I had been following the mailing list for the Haiku project the past week with growing interest. The topic of discussion? Why, the alpha release, of course! What needs to be done, who needs to prepare what, and most importantly, what schedule are they going to settle on? Well, after numerous insightful back-and-forths, the community has settled on a schedule.

"Yes, but Vesa mode on many newer cards is too slow to contemplate.


Have you actually tried it?
"

Yes. On the old nvidia card, it was quite fast, but not on the newer one. Interestingly, great Vesa support is slowly getting the boot from nvidia and ati (JNode did some interesting research into this.) I guess the real estate isn't worth it.
