BeOS & Derivatives It seems like only yesterday when Haiku was nothing more than a mere promise. Oh how the times have changed, as evidenced by yesterday's news: Colin Guenther has ported the FreeBSD WiFi stack to Haiku, and managed to get a connection, browse the internet, and download a large file.

It'd be helpful to look at what the 8 bugs are: some are real show-stoppers, such that those currently using Haiku for anything important (if you don't count developing Haiku and testing it as important) are living dangerously. The developers are doing great work, but there's a valid reason why it is still being officially labeled as "pre-alpha" and they don't do so lightly.

I just want to make it clear.

I don't want they to declared it Alpha if it is not ready. I was pointing to the fact that when they do release the 'Alpha' version that it should truely not have any serious bugs left in it.
