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!

but application installation on Haiku is already just about as simple as it could possibly be (download archive, extract files, double-click the binary, and away you go).

That shows you:

a) Have no idea what you write about
b) Have never used an installation process that's really simple

For example, on Linux, you just select the application from a list. Much easier.

On an IPhone or similar "app store" solutions, you just select the application from a list. Much easier.

The Haiku "solution" is stright out of the 90s, old, dull, boring, and full of makework. Haiku/BeOS fanboys are always so defensive!
