OSNews, Generic OSes It's time for another "OSNews asks" item. This time, I want to focus on something that I've been wanting to talk about with you all before, but never found the time for. The question is simple: which feature(s) from other operating systems would you like to see in your own main operating system?

Using OS X since 2002, OPENSTEP before that.

Had a long wish list for OPENSTEP. OS X has evolved since 2002 and pretty much nailed it for me. I have no serious gripes or ardent wishes.

Maybe a replacement for HFS+ that has all the benefits of ZFS without giving up HFS+ features. People who keep harping about ZFS don't realize that it only represents part of what a desired replacement filesystem should have for OS X.

Beos/Amiga-esque boot ups would be nice too, but OS X isn't designed to be light on resources so I'll live with 24 second boot times and put Haiku on my laptop when they release a live cd.
