BeOS & Derivatives Studio33 has released part II [part I] in its series of articles looking at the current state of Haiku. "In the previous part I talked about the achievements of the Haiku Team since the project was first started, this time I will go deeper into the work that has been done lately and which parts need serious attention in the coming months." Screenshots o'plenty, boys and girls.

I'm terribly confused - How is it that GIMP, OpenOffice.org, Inkscape, etc. require X11 in order to be ported to an OS? I'm pretty certain the Windows ports of these are not using X11 right?

I'm pretty certain that compatibility layers can be written for the porting of these apps. Mostly, POSIX compliance is the most important requirement - then most of the dependencies can be ported, and finally the apps that use them.
