BeOS & Derivatives Gobe Productive v2.0.1 now works in Haiku. "I've played with GoBE Productive for half an hour now, and it seems remarkedly stable. Gobe Productive is a unique piece of software, and one of the darlings of BeOS software. This will surely fill a much needed gap in the office suite department, despite the software's age! It's also testament to the vision of enabling backwards compatibility to BeOS application, and how good Haiku is at it."

While being able to run gobe productive is an amazing step and merit (and I congratulate the Haiku team for such a huge accomplishment), I found gobe productive unsuitable for my everyday homework due to the lack of features.

I was most disappointed when I had to re-do the stuff I had made in gobe's spreadsheet app and inserted into a text document as a table, because when I exported it to doc format (since my printer did not work in BeOS back then) it appeared simply as centered "?"'s.

And I found gobe's much trumpeted "features" quite ordinary and already much superseded by competing office software. It was almost a rip-off for me.
