BeOS & Derivatives Today there are many operating systems available. Every vendor or community round it tries to make it as good as possible. Having different goals, different legacy and different cultures, they succeed in it more or less. We (end users) end up with big selection of operating systems, but for us the operating systems are usually compromise of the features that we would like to have. So is there an operating system that would fit all the needs of the end user? Is is the BeOS clone Haiku?

Oh there's still activity and there will be a WiFi stack eventually once they manage to port over enough *BSD drivers to make it practical to create an interface for managing WiFi, but the fact remains WiFi has yet to be a priority for Haiku.


Actually, the reason you're not seeing any more progress in the osdrawer page for Haiku Wifi is because Colin has ported all of into the main Haiku repo now, where he's added many more drivers and infrastructure already.

http://dev.haiku-os.org/browser/haiku/trunk/src/add-ons/kernel/driv...

But anyway, he is also busy with school now, and only working on it a little bit each day. Several people have been testing the various drivers out though. Note: Still no proper WPA, etc. yet until that part of the software stack is ported/written.
