Well it isn't that hard to download BeOS R5 PE, and I believe you can 
even install it in Linux.  I'm using PE right now myself.  Plus, come 
on, we are trying to recreate BeOS, if someone wants to  help us do 
that I would hope they would be willing to run the current version of 

Also, about the only thing someone would be able to develop would be 
the kernel or small applications, because at this point most of the 
major BeOS libraries aren't available on Linux (of course who knows 
what is up with BlueEyedOS or Cosmoe in that regard.)  Also in some 
sense I thought we were trying to be more "BeOS pure" than the other 
guys and therefore are staying away from Linux ;)
