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.

Yes, I know who the developers were (four, if my memory does not fail), but it's up to them whether they want to come forward or not. You could always ask on one of the Haiku mailing lists.

BTW, there was no money involved whatsoever; the agreement was that the devs would do the work for free and Gobe would release the GP3 binary for Haiku gratis.

I have no idea on the state of the code; that would be another question for the devs, which they may not be able to answer as they were unders NDAs.

Just to clarify, bounty would hypothetically be for development, not for licensing.

Understood. But it would still be funding a closed source solution, something that may not be well seen by some in the community, particularly those who advocate open source.
