BeOS & Derivatives Haiku enthusiast umccullough has posted two very interesting screenshots of Haiku. In the first screenshot, you see Haiku serving a web page using RobinHood, where the second one shows an XP box browsing said web page. The Haiku groupies axe murderers users and developers in #haiku explained, however, that people should not get the wrong picture; Haiku is not ready, in any way, for public consumption, nor is it capable of serving a web page for a prolonged period of time. Just so you know. Update: And another screenshot showing BeShare running on Haiku.

Judging by what the Haiku team have pulled off so far, I would not be in the least surprised if they do.

Consider the complexity of implementing a network stack from scratch in the first place, never mind an operating system.

Then, look at all the documentation with source code available from solid, secure and stable network stacks and I don't see how they can get it wrong.

*BSD and Linux is a great start when checking out other implementations and I doubt I'm the only person on this planet to have thought of that.

Nice to see the Haiku project really build up steam, I was a bit worried far a while there. :-)

do YOU have the competence to make a secure net stack? If so, why not help them out? ;) One must look at their own competence before attacking someone else's.
