Software to Watch: Haiku

Google release a Tech Talk on Haiku.  In a nut shell, Haiku is a new operating system based on BeOS that is designed specifically for the desktop.

In the talk they mentioned that they have some bugs, but once they get those worked out, I wonder if this will be the killer OS that competes directly with Windows for the home desktop.

My biggest question is drivers.  Can I load it onto my laptop?  Will the wireless work on my laptop?  Right now, I don’t have the time to try it, but I will let you know if and when I do.
