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.

Member since:

As the only thing that matters is "which one is faster", are there benchmarks that show notable performance benefits for Haiku message based IPC vs. Unix Domain sockets?

(BTW, They are not plain TCP sockets on Linux/Posix either).

Micro-benchmark are easy to do but they don't really matter, what is much more difficult is to show that it matters 'in real life'..
Case in point: MacOS X has very slow system call (Mach), yet I don't hear many users complaining..
