BeOS & Derivatives Andrew Hudson, whose recent article on BFS over at ARSTechnica intrigued us, shares with us some thoughts on the state of apps on Haiku. It turns out there are several repositories with a vast array of applications ready-to-go for your new Haiku install.

Pacman is a good place to start with, but I think the package manager should have the source code/package management abilities of yaourt to be begin with.
Packages are nice, but the ability to easily compile applications from source with specific options enabled is really nice. Source compiles from ports is one of the reasons I love FreeBSD, and I would like to see Haiku make a serious effort to put binary packages and source code tarballs on equal terms.
