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.

Haiku needs native programs more than ports. Ports are only useful until a viable native solution comes. There is already AbiWord 1.0 and Sumit running on BeOS. True they are old versions, but they do the basic job until a native app comes. Now if only a browser can be completed too. Firefox is great, but Haiku should also have a good native browser.

I saw many projects for a Web browser.
Actually (since Qt developers are doing so and their API seems like the BeOS/Haiku one) WebCore seems a good thing in order to make a native Browser.

As for AbiWord and Sum-it, I think that they can be used to create both a Word Processor and a Spreadsheet for Haiku.

Before working on a WP and a Spreadsheet it would be better to create some new widgets used for these applications.
