I like the idea of a Haiku built on Linux or FreeBSD kernel, but surely don't want to scrap Haiku with its own kernel. The two projects can live in peaceful coexistence. I still would like to see Haiku with its own kernel rather than lose its identity. It will still be necessary/useful to port hardware device drivers from BSD and Linux. I'm thinking in particular about USB 3.0 and USB wi-fi. ...

I don't think there are any larger missing features in either area that we consider blockers for R1. So, while in the long run it might be a good move to keep up with kernel level features and drivers, I don't see how it helps with the almost there situation. Our IMAP implementation will still be broken and our package management solution will still require a lot of work. ...
