BeOS & Derivatives "Last Friday Oliver and I met up to discuss the state of things and how we intend to proceed. The run-time support for package management in Haiku (in the package management branch, of course) is in pretty good shape already. With the system itself and all the third-party software living in packages the system boots and is fully functional."

That whole binary compatibility makes no sense 13 years later. Seriously, the remaining software with available sources can be recompiled in no time and most of the closed/proprietary old time BeOS apps aren't working properly in Haiku a4 anyway.

I'd suggest to break the legacy binary compatibility and focus on full-on Qt port with multimedia and all that jazz. Let Haiku R1 be GCC4 only, at least there's a chance of getting some new software without scaring the developers away with older build tools and things like that.
