      Well, FreeBSD is not a Linux distro although they have compatibility layer for Linux graphics drivers.

        I really hope the FreeBSD compatibility layer is just a stop-gap solution until native drivers are written in long-term.

          Haiku is borrowing from various different open source projects to modernize the OS. Just like ReactOS is as well. This won't be the last announcement of this type for either.

            It is good that Haiku has borrowed and updated its FreeBSD network drivers, networking performance being one of the few things where FreeBSD tends to have the edge over Linux. The Haiku team doesn't have enough resources to duplicate or best what FreeBSD offers here.

              Haiku doesn't use X11 or Wayland and has its own filesystem, so that would be a very different type of distribution..
              Plus as it targets the desktop, so I'm not FreeBSD scheduler's stock scheduler would work well, but yes that would help with the lack of hardware drivers.
