Haiku (formerly known as OpenBeOS) is an operating system designed from the ground up for desktop computing. Inspired by the BeOS, it aims to provide users of all levels with a personal computing experience that is simple yet powerful, and free of any unnecessary complexities. It aims for source and binary compatibility with BeOS R5.
I don't have problems anymore with my NAT router after I added "-o ServerAliveInterval=60" to the ssh command line setting up the tunnel here (using 3.9p1). Is that thing really needed ?

Oh, and btw, mplayer does work in BeOS... just need to get my hands on the diffs and clean them up to be included in the cvs (I heard the patch is quite ugly as is).
