Qt The Haiku alpha is barely out the door, and we already have another important news item about the open source reimplementation of the BeOS. About 18 months ago, Evgeny Abdraimov started porting the Qt4 graphical toolkit to Haiku, and now, we ave some seriously epic screenshots showing a multitude of Qt4 applications running in Haiku, as well as a developer preview release.

Qt 4 Performance on Haiku

What I've heard in the talk with one developer from the Russian trio, is that the Qt4-apps on Haiku works almost as fast as the native software and surpasses the Linux version of Qt 4 big time speed-wise. This is actually very nice to hear, because when you imagine ported software the performance factor is always relevant.

They still have to do some work on font subsystem and Qt theme integration for Haiku. But I'll be very pleased to use some Qt-based software while the native replacements is still in development. I see no sin or evil in this, because Haiku and Linux it's not the same.
