Haiku Gains Support For Current Radeon HD Cards

As reported by Phoronix, the Haiku operating system "has added (untested) support for the newest AMD Radeon graphics cards to its open-source driver for the BeOS-compatible operating system." (Specifically, that support is for the "Mullins" and "Hawaii" graphics processors.) Impressive that this project keeps the BeOS flag raised and continues to modernize; Haiku has been around since 2001 — years longer than Be, Inc. itself lasted.

If I understand correctly there is no hardware acceleration so not much different the our Panorama driver.

That's not because of open source.

Also you've got your chance to change the video drivers situation with that e-mail from Pasha... ;)
