BeOS & Derivatives Michael Lotz, of Tracker.NewFS, SVG, Haiku USB, Qemu, and countless other cool-things-to-have fame has checked in Haiku's first wireless network driver, for the Intel Pro Wireless 2100. This chipset, which inhabits nearly all early Centrino-badged devices, is amongst the more common wireless hardware found in recent computers. It works on r5 as well.

True, Haiku is going to sufficient measures to avoid using GPL'd code as much as possible, if not entirely, for the official code.

This does not stop someone else doing the required work outside of the project to use the GPL'd code, however.

AFAIK Haiku can be distributed under GPL as well
