BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

Three things I can't wait to see...

1. Live CD
2. Partitioner/Installer
3. Basic Wireless Networking Support

It's kind of restrictive having to run the OS in a virtual machine, and I've got an old machine I can't wait to install Haiku onto. The reason I'd like to see wireless networking working correctly is because I'd like to be able to connect the old machine to my WPA-encrypted network instead of using an ethernet cable (much cleaner).

However, given how much of a royal PITA it is in Linux and how little wireless manufacturers help open source software developers with specs and other information necessary to get their devices running, I don't have very high hopes for that one. My experience with their crap devices has been almost 100% bad (even on Windows).
