    99The goal for Haiku R1 is essentially, a fully working and stable operating system. A viable replacement for BeOS R5 (and later).
    1010For 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. This release of Haiku is capable of running binaries built with either GCC 2 or GCC 4. Use of GCC 4 is discouraged, as no compatibility is guaranteed with future versions of Haiku (eg, post-R1).
