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.

Use a non-profit's donated funds to work on proprietary software for a commercial company? Even if you could sell that idea to the community, it doesn't really seem worth the effort for a one-off binary release.

We have bounty money that comes from Karl at Haikuware. So it doesn't have to be from Haiku LLC.

I would say that this doesn't have to be a one-off relationship. And I would also say that if you don't think it's worth the value, then you probably don't understand the full functionality of GOBE Productive. Please read this before commenting further:

This application will fulfill most people's Office needs. When I say it is a kill app, I don't use that term lightly.

While normally I would agree the Haiku devs would have source acess (formal rights to access/distribute would be needed if they payed anything for access)

They might even be able to buy the code... I doubt Gobe is very profitable as a product at them moment even on windows.
