ReactOS gets USB Stack, with Help from Us

News posted on Mon, 2012-02-20 23:22

The ReactOS and Haiku projects have had a friendly working relationship for several years now, with each group helping the other whenever possible. These range from helping each other with conference attendance at SCALE and FOSDEM to development related matters. Haiku was especially helpful during ReactOS’ successful application to Google Summer of Code 2011, providing advice and feedback on ReactOS’ application efforts, and the ReactOS project remains grateful for the assistance.

The current ReactOS USB stack was started by Michael Martin, with Johannes Anderwald quickly joining in the development effort. Recently Johannes made significant progress in completing its USB stack, thanks to the reference Haiku's USB stack provided.

SOPA / PIPA information

Today the internet is taking a moment to protest the current US internet censorship bills.

SOPA and its brother PIPA are universally seen as limiting free speech on the internet. Many organizations including Google, Wikipedia, Reddit, and thousands of others are using today to better inform the public in a non-partisan way that these bills are bad for freedom on the internet at large.

You can find more information on SOPA, PIPA, and who you can contact to voice your opinion to at sopablackout.org

2011: From the desk of Haiku, Inc.

News posted on Tue, 2012-01-03 03:42

2011 has been an amazing year for Haiku in many ways. It is easy to see the improvements in Haiku (the operating system) by looking at the nightly builds or the bug tracker. In quite such a tangible way. Haiku, Inc. serves as the business arm of the project, if you will, collecting donations, handling paperwork, dealing with web hosting, etc. It is a little harder to see some of the improvements in Haiku, Inc. sometimes - they are a little more "behind the scenes", so we wanted to take this time to talk about all of the good stuff that has happened!

API Design is Hard, Finding Bugs (Can be Made) Easy!

Blog post by mmlr on Fri, 2011-12-23 19:34

Puh, time has passed again and the signals from my side might have been a bit confusing with only the last blog post in mind. Therefore I'm going to explain what provoked that flurry of seemingly unrelated commits and how the KeyStore API is coming along.

The Haiku Tutorial is Here!

Blog post by RhapsodyGuru on Tue, 2011-12-06 23:40

Greetings Haiku-ers!

So... I have finally gotten around to finishing the Haiku tutorial I set out to complete over a year ago. I was hoping to have it done sooner, but I decided to then prolong graduation for another year. However, my thesis project has been a rocking success, and you can finally see the fruits of my labors. :D

This production should be incorporated into the project as official tutorial material. I am very happy to have been involved in this project, and I sincerely thank everyone for their support... especially Matt Madia for green-lighting the project and Joe Prostko for his assistance and unswerving benevolence. I hope you all find this interesting and enjoyable to watch. The target audience for this production is geared towards those into Linux/BSD/et al, but are curious about Haiku and what it can do for them. Please feel free to opine in the comments section below! I want to hear all of your thoughts! :D
