Hi charlie,
that would not bring haiku os to the next level. Libreoffice is ported to haiku ass well. porting kodi to haiku would bring much that haiku lacks now: youtube-support, extensive media-support, even netflix-support all with the port of one app. It would make the difference between haiku os beeing usable as a mainstream daily os for millions of users or beeing long-away from that point. Of course in later years haiku might support these featuures from native apps, but until than a kodi port would bring much possibilities.

What would the advantage of Kodi on Haiku be versus Kodi on Linux? It would be just another media player. Furthermore, it is a deliberate oversimplification which neatly avoids the question of who is actually going to do the work. Are you offering to do so?
