Okay :-)
When developing BeOS/Haiku apps under Linux, this can be quite 
annoying, though (because you would need to test them in emulation).
At least I can't recommend doing this under Haiku yet :)

We have lots of ungrateful items in our bug list :-)
One of those would be to make the rest of our existing (and partially 
not so well written) applications font sensitive.
I don't think we have a whole application left to do, but you could of 
course have a look at our bug tracker directly; maybe there is 
something that interests you:


There are probably other things left apart from this list, though, if 
you don't find anything (ie. additional translators or something like 
this comes to mind).
