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.

To my knowledge, Haiku is aiming for compatibility with both BONE and net_server, and that their netstack is based off of the one in freebsd 6.0

Axel discussed the design of the Haiku netstack with the other developers for a while, and then he designed Haiku's own netstack from scratch. Of course he looked at the other implementations and borrowed good ideas, mostly from BONE AFAIK. But it is wrong to say that the Haiku netstack is *based* on the freebsd 6.0 stack or any other. The Haiku stack is not a port, and the pros and cons of that decision were well discussed.
