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.

That is of the design of the underlying OS of which Haiku inherits from BeOS.
Having a native office suite allows for the use of system wide plugin architecture that allows for so much more than on other OS's. For instance: Once you have a plugin to handle JPEG's for a specific application, then all other applications can utilise the plugin's JPEG capability.

This is just one of the things that separate BeOS/Haiku from other OS's.
