Just a reminder that Haiku is binary compatible with legacy BeOS applications. A lot of former BeOS developers have suspended their projects (or moved on to other platforms) and have been waiting for this moment to arrive before resuming their suspended projects (well, I'm one of these developers). So we should see a dramatic increase in number of applications during the following years.
