BeOS & Derivatives Two news items about alternative operating system news in a row? What is this, Christmas? In any case, the Haiku project, the darling of OSNews (hey it's okay now), has released its second alpha release. This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

As you mentioned, if Haiku doesn't have a driver for your video card then it will use the VESA driver. The VESA driver is very good, but it is only possible for it to support a specific set of screen resolutions, none of which are wide screen:

That's actually not correct, most modern graphics cards will query the monitor for its preferred resolution and add a VESA mode line for that one specifically to the BIOS's exported list.
