General support for video + network (Eth/wifi) + internal/external drives?


I’d like to run Haiku off a USB stick for:

  • data recovery, when Windows no longer boots
  • banking operations, in case Windows has some hidden viruses. As for web-based viruses (XSS, etc.), I don’t know how secure it’d be to use the browser of an lesser-known OS like Haiku

Because of this, I need to know how well Haiku supports all the devices out there, whether it’s video, networking (Ethernet and wifi), and mass storage devices (internal SATA/PATA and USB-based).

I assume Linux supports many more devices, but is Haiku good enough for such use?

Thank you.
