BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

While its cool, video and audio editing on BeOS is joke. There are no applications that are good enough for professional work. So even it it could run 40 streams without hickups its just a nice demo to impress your roommates.

There really aren't many outside of Windows and Mac. Of all of the apps on Linux for video editing, only Cinelerra, and Kdenlive even come close, and it's still a huge step down from even Premiere elements.

VLMC looks very promising, but development is moving at a pretty slow pace.

I think once there are stable, pro-quality video editing apps for Linux, it will be trivial to have them on Haiku as well.

On the other hand, audio is looking better, since some of the major audio hardware companies still use BeOS in their hardware, and will probably use Haiku when there is a stable release. Maybe there will be a version of Ardour, Audacity or Traverso when there is a 1.0 release... but until then, I doubt you'll see many popular apps for Haiku.
