Qt The Haiku alpha is barely out the door, and we already have another important news item about the open source reimplementation of the BeOS. About 18 months ago, Evgeny Abdraimov started porting the Qt4 graphical toolkit to Haiku, and now, we ave some seriously epic screenshots showing a multitude of Qt4 applications running in Haiku, as well as a developer preview release.

Come on guys!

These three russian guys spent a lot of their spare time (I think so, because Haiku is not a commercial platform in any way..... yet) to port one of the best GUI toolkits available to their favorite platform and you kicked their a**es? If you do not want Haiku, please do not use it; if you do not like Qt applications running on top of Haiku, enjoy your "native world with no applications" then... but the effort of these people is admirable and should be recognized by the community.... "Thanks" is a really nice word that everyone here should say to them....

Guys.. thanks ;)

yup. Haiku is about freedom and choices. Now haiku itself won't have several haiku api's and DE's. Haiku has just one to call its own. Everything within haiku will be nice and clean and under control. But apps outside Haiku can't be expected to meet the standards and wishes of the Haiku devs.

What Haiku can do is provide some sort of 'certification' for quality apps that use native api's and features. This way the user will know what to look for and be in a better position to choose apps that show off Haiku.
