BeOS & Derivatives This is one of those news items that's fun to write, fun to read, fun to comment on, and where no one will be able to say anything unkind. It's all just one big ball of awesome fluffiness. TuneTracker, the BeOS radio automation software, has just released something very special: TuneTracker System 5, the first version designed entirely and specifically for Haiku. In fact, it actually includes Haiku in the software package. Better yet, TuneTracker also unveiled several system-in-a-box products - which have Haiku and TuneTracker pre-installed.

Honestly, this would be wasted effort. BeOS and Haiku have their own native API. All OS that have done this compromise look and feel for functionality - both Cygwin and XQuartz are both seriously ugly. Plus, really, what apps? GTK+ and Qt apps would be better server by porting the underlying toolkits (and Qt already worked at one point, probably still does)... what other amazing X based apps that use the raw API are there? Everything else uses some kind of toolkit that might be ported also, surely?.
