Zeta "An operating system without an office suite is limited in its mass market appeal, making this a fairly serious issue. When yellowTAB decided to update ZETA's compiler, much thought was given to this problem in particular, and finally an answer made itself clear."

Porting UNIX-apps

If YT focuses on porting OO I don't think the issue that BeOS is non-UNIX will be a big one. Porting is always hard for big projects, and the documentation, build-system and code-quality is much bigger issues than that BeOS is special. Another big issue is the man-hours that can be put into the porting, where YT will have a nice edge: full time employees ;)

Also lets hope OO is less of a moving target than Firefox is.
