BeOS & Derivatives What's that you say? You made a New Year's resolution but haven't kept it? You vowed to sharpen your programming skills, write a cool application, AND use cutting edge operating system technology? Look no further, you have come to the right place. This article will get you started writing applications for Haiku, the open source version of the advanced BeOS operating system.

A 64-bit future?

I applaud the effort that is going into re-creating BeOS (in my mind the best OS in history) but what are the plans in regards to 64-bit mode?

Everyone is going 64-bit these days for the wider registers (and more of them) as well as access to more than 4GiB of RAM. Does the Haiku project have this on their roadmap? Can this even be added without breaking the older (binary only) applications?
