BeOS & Derivatives Two interesting bits of news from the Haiku front. First, Haiku now has basic support for FireWire, thanks to GSOC student JiSheng Zhang. You cannot connect a FireWire hard drive just yet, though. Second, Russian BeOS hacker Troeglazov Gerasim has ported Samba 3.10 to Haiku, so you can now browse your Windows shares in Haiku, as well as share files through Samba in Haiku. IsComputerOn has the details, as well as some screenshots.

"You do that these days on just about any OS without batting an eye lid."

not true...

The type of response Haiku (or BeOS) is capable of is simply not possible on the same [my] machine running opensuse 10.2 without extensive tweaking. That amounts to real time kernel installation, jack audio installation etc.

Even then, the resulting performance is not nearly as good.
