    Saw this earlier. Word was the sources will be put up somewhere for public consumption?

    Anyway I hope this goes somewhere, even if it divides the Haiku dev team to do so. I used to have high hopes for Haiku for some reason, but driver support is still really bad. Better to use a kernel that's already all the way there IMO. (Especially now that Linux uses kernel modesetting, I would bet that fixes a lot of potential display server issues...)

    Edit: hey, I wonder what other legacy OS APIs would be amenable to implementing on top of a Linux or BSD kernel. Classic Mac running atop a modern Linux kernel on x86, anyone? :p

    So, two weeks later, no source code anywhere as far as I can tell... Sigh.
