BeOS & Derivatives Today marks an entire week of using Haiku as my primary operating system. This is my first PC to get the most out of any BeOS related operating system to date. My old 200MHz Toshiba ran R5 PE just fine but without any networking. My eMachine ran Zeta just fine, but once again, there were networking issues (and Zeta was pronounced dead around this time). In the age of the Internet, this pretty much forced me away from BeOS and its decendants until now.

I've been using the experimental wifi driver, with my router currently unsecured (I essentially live in the middle of nowhere, so this isn't a huge deal for me).


If it doesn't support WPA1/2 or even WEP this is pretty much a showstopper for any normal person.

A non-issue currently - Haiku itself isn't meant for "normal users" at this point, and the wifi support isn't included or enabled by default. Anyone who installs experimental software on an Alpha OS probably isn't a "normal user."

And I highly doubt that the developers plan to release a final/stable version without any encryption support.
