BeOS & Derivatives We've got some serious progress for Haiku for you. Firstly, the Haiku WiFi stack compiled for the first time. Eventually, it will be a native WiFi stack with FreeBSD driver compatibility, much like the ordinary Haiku network stack. Secondly, progress has also been made in TV card support.

Cool; mind you even if USB support was mature, wvdial would have to be ported along with some other stuff. Hopefully it'll eventually get there in the end.

Is there an eta on shipping a stable Haiku yet? I remember around 6 months ago they had a really good website which allowed one to go into each of the kits and components to see the percentage of each; why have they gotten rid of a progress page? thats one of the things when I first get interested in a project is to see where they are wanting to get to and how far along they are.

It has a few bugs here and there, but it's quite usable. If you pay attention to the haiku-development mailing list, you'll note that "the TV tuner developer" says a lot of things, and makes a lot of accusations that tend to ruffle feathers and generally piss off the Haiku developers lately.

But that's just my observation, check the facts for yourself.
