Sponsoring Bitwise Works, we need your donations!
« on: March 25, 2019, 07:52:46 pm »
The OS/2 community has been very supportive to support Bitwise works its effort to the port the latest QT version to OS/2. But can you please consider donating more ? We need your continued support.

For two reasons this QT is port is being done to OS/2/ArcaOS:

1. To be able to port other QT based programs to OS/2/ArcaOS.  Such as games.

2. More important the Firefox browser is dead for 2 reasons on OS/2. The first is that Mozilla was adding and removing to much with each release of Firefox for us to keep up with the development. Second we would need the RUST compiler on OS/2.  Which in it self would a lot of work to port RUST to OS/2.

With QT ported to OS/2 we can port different QT based web browsers. One of these browsers being Google Chromium which also exists on Linux.  Other browsers can be considered as well! The beaty is that with most QT browsers about 80% of the functional code is in the QT library.

For more information about this QT port you can read the different newsletter on the VOICE website:
