BeOS & Derivatives People love screenshots. It's probably because humans are a very visually orientated species. When it comes to software, people claim to be able to judge entire products, just by looking at a few screenshots. Especially for those people: 85 screenshots of Haiku running all sorts of applications. For the people who've been living under a rock the past 5 years: Haiku is an attempt to recreate BeOS as an open source product. And for the people who don't know BeOS-- click here.

"Right now, I can't do builds. Not sure exactly why, but the latest revision I downloaded (r16807) won't build. I get some weird "[something] too long" error. I have 386Mb of RAM. That was enough a couple days ago. Has something changed? "

Compile the jam contained in the haiku repository and use that one. Your jam version isn't able to compile the tree.

The version of jam I've been using was perfectly fine no less than a couple days ago (jamming R1670x or so). You mean it's suddenly obsolete, just like that? If so, is there a binary version of the latest version (that works) that I can download? What's the version number?

That's weird, then. If the error you're getting is "command line too long", it surely looks like a bug tied to a previous jam version.
Are you building under beos, linux or ... ?
Finally, no, I don't think there is a binary version (of jam) to download. You need to build the one in the tree. Unless you get it from someone else, of course ;)
