BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku network stack currently under heavy development is reportedly working with the Vision IRC client. Haiku developer Axel Dörfler reports that the network stack can now successfully run the Vision IRC client (screenshot on the Haiku website). At this stage, the network still needs to be configured manually, but this can be easily done by editing a couple of files as explained here. Haiku can use BeOS network drivers, so if your NIC is not supported, you can try finding a driver on BeBits.com.

Don't expect a R1 too early. The Haiku guys are serious, R1 will mean stable release. Anyway, Haiku is moving fast forward gratefully with Axel and others devs
Thanks again to all who contribute!

Agreed - they're a while away from the R1 release right now.

However Haiku is looking to be close to having an alpha release. Definitely good news.

Now if only there were images I could download to run in Parallels on my Mac...

Take a look here for how to get Haiku running in Parallels:

I haven't tried the new netstack in Parallels but hopefully it'll work. It's nice to see Axel is still locked in the basement. ;)
