I don't want to bash Be's developers, but while developing Haiku we were often surprised how poor BeOS is actually implemented in many parts (robustness, bugs, ...).
It's almost a mystery to me why it mostly works that good; I would be very surprised if we don't surpass it pretty much everywhere. After all, that's the point of creating a successor :-)
