BeOS & Derivatives Today marks an entire week of using Haiku as my primary operating system. This is my first PC to get the most out of any BeOS related operating system to date. My old 200MHz Toshiba ran R5 PE just fine but without any networking. My eMachine ran Zeta just fine, but once again, there were networking issues (and Zeta was pronounced dead around this time). In the age of the Internet, this pretty much forced me away from BeOS and its decendants until now.

What people used to say about mozilla:
"If you are not interested in a browser that actually works adequately and without major slow-downs and crashes, then sure, it's a good deal. But if you are into the Internet age, then Mozilla doesn't cut it. Let's face it and not hide behind our finger for the sake of supporting a browser project. I loved Netscape , I like Mozilla as an idea, and I wish the best for the project. But I would never use it as my main browser. It doesn't do anything that I want to do properly."

Fortunately the mozilla people didn't really care and despite IE dominance and AOL despair (http://www.jwz.org/gruntle/nomo.html), they pulled off firefox and now it is very popular.
