BeOS & Derivatives Even more Haiku news today. Oliver Ruiz Dorantes, who will be monitoring GSoC student Salvatore Benedetto coming summer, has started work on what will become an office suite for Haiku. His blog already shows the first screenshots of the project. He is seeking for help on the project, so if you have the experience, feel free t help him out. Also, a new batch of icons has been added to Haiku.

Gobe appears to be dead, I have tried several times in the past to contact them. For some reason my boxed copy of GobeProductive 2 came up one day with This trial has expired, I uninstalled it then reinstalled it from disk. Nope, heard that there is a way to hack it to work again but personally not worth it for me. Gobe's support forum closed, and no one answeres the phone, all their reviews and press pages etc. refer to 2004ist time. Someone had said they had purchased the rights to the code and then later said the deal fell through, as far as I know that was the last heard from Gobe, other then at one time their was a comment about Zeta not paying correctly for liscences, then that was it.

If your CD of GoBe is 2.0, this will happen. If so, go to BeBits and download the 2.01 update - that will fix it.

Gobe should either recompile and maintain or donate the source code of the BeOS Verison of the Productive Suite to the Haiku organization.

Freeing the source is is probably the best if not the only way to salvage the code and put it to good use and maintain it. The project could be managed under Haiku or a separate non-profit organization.

This would be a huge boost to Haiku.

Since that file is on my old website which I have not paid for for over a year I did not expect it to work.

However I just went to http://www.bebits.com/app/4147 and downloaded it with no problems.

If it stops working in the future I will move it to my new ISP/website.
