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.

To take *ANY* GUI "widgets" from Zeta is going to look extremely hokey in Haiku, because it won't "fit", looks-wise.

You're right, and while we're at it, let's get rid of all the scrollbar widgets in Haiku. I'm certain I've seen them in other OS's and therefore they look horrible and foreign in Haiku.

Besides, who wants to have ANY association, in looks or function... to an OS whose very *existance* is deemed illegal by the new BeOS IP owners? Are we all crazy or something?

Apparently everyone who wants to use Haiku or BeOS, because they're all very similar OS's.
