As some may have noticed, my UEFI branch got merged in November, purely by accident too! However, until now, we still haven't been able to boot to the desktop. Whilst still in development, the addition of a simple framebuffer driver and a crucial fix by Henry has enabled Haiku to now boot all the way to the desktop using QEMU.

In today's world, an important milestone.

Our computer science education was a joke.

Well I gotta say, while the curriculum was of no use, the fact the school computers were so absurdly restricted so as to force me to break their security with that boot floppy was a lovely little lesson in finding and exploiting security flaws. Developing my workaround forced me to use some half decent lateral thinking skills for a young teen. By far not the most elegant solution of course, but I'm still proud of that particular accomplishment ;)
