BeOS & Derivatives After eight years of hard work, the day has finally arrived. Today, September 14, the Haiku project has released its very first alpha release. With the goal of recreating one of the most beloved operating systems in history, the BeOS, they took on no small task, but it seems as if everything is finally starting to come together. Let's talk about the history of the BeOS, where Haiku comes from, and what the Alpha is like.

Now I hope that there will be a good working ipw2100 driver in the future and haiku would be a good surf os for me.


I've actually written one back then for BeOS. It is limited though, because it only supports what the hardware supports, namely WEP only. Still it works just fine in Haiku. I've re-packaged up a version here: http://haiku.mlotz.ch/ipw2100-1.0.1-haiku.zip

It comes with a pretty self explanatory installer that guides you through. Should work out of the box.
