ReactOS Now this is what I like to see. Smaller, alternative operating systems have been dying by the dozens these past 6 years or so, so in order for the remainder to survive, they need to work together. ReactOS and Haiku have been doing that for a while now, and the latest fruits of this collaboration is a much-improved USB stack for ReactOS.

Bravo and I am expecting to see other collaborations like AROS/osFree/Puredarwin/Plan9 (and derivatives)/Minix/Genode/Hurd/Syllable/ReactOs/Haiku.


I'm not sure what they ended up doing in the end, but I know that AROS was curious about Haiku's work on the WLAN (Wifi) stuff. I remember speaking with someone from AROS last year at SCALE - he was interested in Haiku's stack. I'm not sure what strategy they ultimately went with, however.

Since Haiku copied most of the WLAN stack code (as well as other netcard drivers) from FreeBSD, perhaps that's where they ended up going as well.

This is how FOSS is supposed to work ;)
