Koffice: It is available and easily installed.


Recent version of
Transmission is also available now and works just fine:

So it is not just rumors.. They are true, and all of them works fine over here at least. I know anecdotal evidence is worthless so i recommend you try it out for yourself.

Also the excellent webkit browser QTWeb is also available now for haiku and crashes alot less than arora on my system.

I am sorry but I have to disagree here. Firstly, it is not Thom's text :-) KOffice and VLC 1.0.4 do not and have not run on Haiku. At least not Alpha 2.

KOffice does not have an easily reproducible installation. And Haiku was previously missing necessary POSIX signals needed by VLC. I alpha tested it in Jan 2010. This may be changing soon. But no hard news yet.

Can you perhaps send a screen capture of these running on your copy of Haiku? :-)
