    99The goal for Haiku R1 is essentially, a fully working and stable operating system. A viable replacement for BeOS R5 (and later).
    10 For Haiku R1 Alpha the goal was to be a usable version of Haiku that is self-hosting, that is, that can check out the sources from SVN, and compile them, and to enable current and future Haiku developers a (mostly) stable operating system to work on their software projects.  Therefore we have included the basic build tools, along with clients for cvs, svn, git and hg.

Use of GCC 4 is discouraged, as no compatibility is guaranteed with future versions of Haiku (eg, post-R1).
