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 abstracts away the way drawing and input events are done, by porting Qt to Haiku, the porters must have implemented Haiku versions of both. That doesn't mean you'll be able to use every cool-new-feature but it does mean Qt apps use whatever haiku is using.

Framebuffer drawing is going away anyways at some point in favor of vector drawing, thats my thought anyways, as multiresolution applications need to be able to scale their drawing abilities and hardware can do it much faster than drawing it all in software.
