I once asked on haiku-development emailing list if it would be possible to port Web Positive browser to Linux and BSD, and the answer was that it would be difficult to impossible because of differences and incompatibilities between the Haiku software libraries and the software libraries in Linux and *BSD.

So I imagine it would be practically impossible to port Haiku display server to Linux or BSD.  But I don't know everything, could possibly be wrong on this issue.
