That's pretty awesome actually. Perhaps the only usable/productive hobby OS in existence?

Facebook is anti-productive, so that cancel out any productivity improvements. Facebook is the plague. It is the only thing more distracting at work than the Internet (Facebook excluded, of course).

Just don't use it then. Unless it's used for work communication that is (but that would indicate a fucked up workplace in itself)...

I don't even have an account, this is not the problem. The problem is that my coworked do, so they are not "coworking" on our stuff anymore, they are facebooking.

So you've never heard of Haiku OS or you don't consider it productive O.o?

I find it quite nice and innovative as well myself. Probably more productive than Mona for any purpose.

I figured someone would bring up Haiku at some point. It's not that I don't consider it to be productive, rather I don't consider Haiku to be just a hobby OS =)

I've followed MonaOS for a few years now.
It's one of those very cool little projects that bubbles away in the background, getting better and better every month.
Small, MIT-licensed - great all over!
