BeOS & Derivatives Some interesting tidbits from the Haiku world. Firstly, the WebKit port bounty has reached its target, meaning Ryan Leavengood can get to work. Secondly, Vasper has made huge strides in getting CUPS ported to Haiku. And on a funny note, BeOS icons were used in the "24" TV show.

The Haiku kernel is not a port, it is a rewrite of the NewOS kernel (MIT licensed) that aims to be binary compatible with BeOS. All other parts of Haiku are written from scratch.


Actually, it's a -fork- of NewOS.
