BeOS & Derivatives Even more Haiku news today. Oliver Ruiz Dorantes, who will be monitoring GSoC student Salvatore Benedetto coming summer, has started work on what will become an office suite for Haiku. His blog already shows the first screenshots of the project. He is seeking for help on the project, so if you have the experience, feel free t help him out. Also, a new batch of icons has been added to Haiku.

I don't understand the goal of this project. The guy wants to make an office suite? From sratch? That's the most crazy idea I've heard in a while ;)

I know that porting OpenOffice is crazy too but at least you're not reinventing the wheel :| Even with those "open format", making an office suite from scratch is not staightforward.

Every office suite has to start somewhere. At least by starting from scratch, this guy won't inherit any of the problems that exist with current office suits (speed issues, java etc..).
