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.

Look again, Haiku's MediaPlayer looks like it will end up features found in SoundPlay.

MediaPlayer already supports most sound formats and a number of video formats, I expect streaming to end up added to the mix soon.

As good as ITunes? No. A 90's music player? No-Way.

I think my point was that I don't think an "iTunes like mp3 player" is a good solution. I liked soundplay a lot, and hope the solution will be along the same lines. Offer a music player that supports multiple formats and keep video out. iTunes is just...messy.

I think you are missing a point about BeOS here.

MediaPlay plays media files - all types of media files, as long as a BeOS codec exists on the system. That is the true beauty of BeOS, things just work.
