    Plus Haiku already has a layer for BSD drivers, so if it were to get ported, I think they'd port it to BSD rather than Linux.

        I play around with Haiku from time on KVM.
        Its slowly improving.
        2D performance (2K resolution, qxl device) is more-than-OK, minus some half second hangs (seems to be a known issue).
        Its even usable using a remote ADSL link w/ spicy.

          Doubt that it'll happen, any time soon.
          AFAIK It will require a major rewrite of their display server.

              I've been following this issue for a while.
              I assume it'll get more attention once they'll pass the B2 milestone (hopefully making it a stable daily driver).
