BeOS & Derivatives Andrew Hudson, whose recent article on BFS over at ARSTechnica intrigued us, shares with us some thoughts on the state of apps on Haiku. It turns out there are several repositories with a vast array of applications ready-to-go for your new Haiku install.

pacman (the arch package manager) should be ported to Haiku.

edit:
I hope Blender (the 3D graphics app) will get Haiku support back.


I'm not so sure about pacman, I'd rather have a graphical package manager directly written for haiku. As for Blender, indeed I'd love to see that. Personally, with Blender and Inkscape ported I would be able to do alot more productively in Haiku. Until we get 3d hardware acceleration in Haiku Blender will likely not be very useful other than for rendering, but Inkscape should perform well.
