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.

I was very surprised by the QT4 porting efforts and how far this has already come.

I like QT because it adresses a lot of issues you run into while trying to write software for different plattforms.

Of course "native" Apps are better and so on, but QT is very fast and I have no problems with using well done QT applications (like Opera for example). You can't compare it with things as slow as Swing for example.

And it surely will help porting software to HAIKU - so I think it's great news after all.
