Step by step, inch by inch, Haiku is getting closer being fully self hosted. Last night (and into this morning), Michael Lotz managed to check out the Haiku tree, then compile the Haiku image and finally boot it under QEMU, all of this from Haiku itself. There are still problems of course, like memory leaks, etc, but this marks an important step in the Haiku trip (not that kind of trip).

The checkout took a long time, and several reboots, and a change (hack) was needed by Michael, but I'm everyone welcomes this news has good news. Just don't think Haiku's ready to replace your _insert most used desktop OS here_ anytime soon. Congrats to everyone involved and here's hoping to a Beta this year :)
