BeOS & Derivatives Since I encountered BeOS 5 Personal Edition, my experience with BeOS PE led me to purchase the BeOS 5 Professional Edition, which I used for some years. I am not ashamed to say that I love using this OS. After the demise of Be Corp., I still used BeOS as my "main OS" since it would do everything that I needed to do, except for gaming and academic works. I closely followed all the developments of the BeOS contenders after Be's fall... Until Zeta OS became the leading standard for a short time. I purchased every Zeta OS release that YellowTab produced. It is currently my favorite BeOS version today.

In regards to the missing and broken libraries, many of these are being rebuilt for Haiku. I'm in the process of rebuilding the SDL Libs:
http://ports.haiku-files.org/wiki/SDL-LibPak
Many of these have other dependencies so those may need rebuilding as well. We could always use a few more hands over at HaikuPorts to help rebuilding these.

As for ArmyKnife, that one will soon see an update, the project page for it is at:
http://dev.osdrawer.net/projects/armyknife
Beezer: http://dev.osdrawer.net/projects/beezer
Hare (renamed FlipSide AE not yet released):, correct the GUI on this one is broken, and that's one of the holdups on a new release, that and the missing updated audio encoders to do the actual work. If anyone wants to take a shot at fixing it the source code it posted: http://dev.osdrawer.net/projects/hare
BeAE: http://developer.berlios.de/projects/beae

If you find any bugs in these apps be sure to report them on their project pages, bugs reports help the devs make the programs better.

There's many ported libaries and such on the HaikuPorts download page, but many of these have seen little testing:

If you have any troubles with them be sure to report them on HaikuPorts trac.
