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.

Given the severely illegal status of Zeta, as dictated by Access, I wouldn't want a single pixel from Zeta to get anywhere NEAR Haiku! Tainted code taints EVERYTHING! It's like GPL! Even worse!

Oh come on now, you're really going overboard there.

That's like saying: You can't write software using Microsoft's .NET Framework with the target platform intended to be Mono. It's the same API! BeOS had it first (before Zeta) - so what is the big deal? Haiku uses (mostly) the same API as BeOS/Zeta anyway - so you're really nitpicking here.

The code belongs to this developer - if he wishes to use Zeta to develop it, and then compile it for Haiku later, that's entirely his business. Why people get so upset about this, I don't understand.

Edit: BTW, in case you didn't notice - quite a few of the Haiku developers USED to work on Zeta at one point or another...
