BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

Thats nice, Haiku probably have a lot better chances of any adoption this way. Is its browser based on Webkit, I thought so? If so, can it be integrated smoothly with the Google Appstore? (or what about porting the Chromium browser even?).

Getting enough traction with native apps could be a struggle in the desktop space (even OpenSolaris could not really pull this off IMHO, standing on the shoulders of Linux efforts for some of its apps) so this is nice.
