BeOS & Derivatives And now we're ready to start picking the fruits of Qt being available on Haiku. We reported on the completion of the Qt port to Haiku on January 1, 2010, and now we already have KOffice running on the open source recreation of the BeOS. A modern office suite for Haiku!

Haiku OS is Very Good

I have been running a recent nightly build of Haiku about 60% of the time on my Aspire One netbook. It has wifi, sound, network, acceleration, etc., all working nicely. The few areas that could be improved are in applications, and online streaming media.

I was looking for a good office suite - I bought the download version of Gobe Productive years ago but can't find where to get it now. KOffice, while not my first choice in Linux, answers that issue.

The next is a good multiprotocol IM client. I still don't have that resolved other than to use Meebo online. The third is that streaming media from the internet should work better. It has been pretty hit and miss as to the sites I can use. Otherwise, I am pretty happy with this OS and find it a very high performance solution for netbooks.

I am looking forward to trying TiltOS with KOffice.

Thank you.
