> Why is it they're taking so much stuff from Haiku?

A number of reasons:

1) Because it costs nothing to use someone elses code
2) Because the changes they make to BeOS code they have are required to be returned to the owner of the code - using Haiku code they get around this.
3) Re-inventing the wheel for the sake of re-inventing the wheel is pointless.

The more open components they have, the easier it'll be for them to continue after their licese for the sourcecode expires in 2009 (or there abouts.)
