BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

I did just that in addition to having a few browser windows open, and I'm not noticing any issues at all. CPU use is hovering around 10% and i can't even find a single stutter to complain about.

I just tried it myself but I didn't bother with mp3s. I just opened 10 AVI files instead, resulting in about 17% CPU usage. That's not bad IMHO; 10 simultaneous videos playing and plenty of room for more. Haiku ain't the only OS that can do that and the people promoting Haiku should rather find something else to use as metrics instead of "I can play so and so many videos at the same time!" Playing several video streams on even a moderately recent hardware just is no feat at all.
