Hello everyone!

I just have a few... well... newbie questions :)

How much of Haiku is actually based off of BeOS? I read somewhere that
Haiku actually uses very little of the original BeOS code, so would
anything from the original BeBook/Be User Guide still apply to it?

Haiku also doesn't seem to recognize the USB headset I have hooked up.

Also, what are there for modern programs that currently-in-use by
other major operating systems also have a port for Haiku? It would be
great to see Blender/GIMP/etc be available for it. It would be even
nicer if I could set up a localhost Wordpress server.

Just asking!


using real genuine beos code, iirc tracker and deskbar mostly.
