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.

Linux in 4 years will still be using the "bazaar" model for most of it's userland. So it will still be an unpolished incoherent OS with little attention to detail. That has no hope of getting ever fixed.
Also at the current rate, in 4 years Linux will require a 50 core CPU with 50 Gigs of RAM to be able to run decently as a desktop. So that's why even waiting 20 years for Haiku is preferable.
