OBOS will be binary compatible with BeOS R5. so indeed you could do this
without a problem.
don't know about who you should tell though.

and then move my work over to OBOS once it is ready for it. Yes ?  Any
comments ?   Who should I 'officially' let know that I am doing this ?   It
will be good to see some modern kit display the performance it is really
capable of.
