BeOS & Derivatives Gobe Productive v2.0.1 now works in Haiku. "I've played with GoBE Productive for half an hour now, and it seems remarkedly stable. Gobe Productive is a unique piece of software, and one of the darlings of BeOS software. This will surely fill a much needed gap in the office suite department, despite the software's age! It's also testament to the vision of enabling backwards compatibility to BeOS application, and how good Haiku is at it."

looks like it's handling of a Atari partion (like make, read, write), don't really know but then it's up to him.

Not every one can make those changes that need to be done until alpha release are ready.

Haiku can be built with gcc4.x from linux, think there are a howto on Haiku-OS.org.

To run BeOS apps on Haiku, Haiku must be built with gcc 2.95.x

Is there a noticable increase in performance when Haiku is built with gcc4.x?
Or isn't this visible since you can't run apps?

Is gcc4 necessary for using modern technologies like SSE3?

Great progress by the way! Finally Haiku is getting more mature. Still remember watching the progress bars on the old site frequently... It seemed like the different parts were remained in the planning fase forever. But now there's an almost usable system :-P
