Haiku OS, a powerful and lightweight open source operating system, has recently introduced improved support on UEFI and the FreeBSD compatibility layer. See the full story over at Phoronix, including a user discussion at the link below.

For those interested in the BeOS-inspired Haiku open-source operating system, they have issued their latest monthly progress report to end out 2016.

Last time we were talking about Haiku OS on Phoronix it was about working on UEFI support and that continued throughout December. Haiku OS now has a simple frame-buffer driver for UEFI, some key fixes have landed, serial debug support was added to investigate issues when booting with UEFI, improved GPT partition creation, and other improvements.
