Any "when" answer is going to come bundled with tons of "ifs". If we keep 
going at this pace, we might have something usable in a year. Maybe two? One 
of the big question marks is the networking support. I would assume that some 
portions of code which are in a "get it working now - make it nice later" 
kind of condition, would need revisiting before release. And we cannot really 
tell how many crucial, hard to track down bugs still creep up. But from my 
perspective, I would say we are more at the finishing end of the work - after 
all, you can start large R5 applications in Haiku. And even run them for 
about a minute or so...or maybe two? :-)

Best regards,
