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.

Since Firefox runs on Haiku you already have an office suite: docs.google.com

Even big companies are using it, so why not the 0.003324% of the world that uses Haiku?

I can think of three good reasons not to:
(1) security
(2) reliability
(3) no guarantee of availability.

Your 0.003324% is about 200k people. Stop exaggerating. It's not even half that.
