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.

Hmmm. Partisan much?

So you seem to be arguing that in 4 years, Haiku will *not* be using the bazaar model. Which corporation do you expect to take Haiku proprietary? And via what legal loophole?

Linux currently runs on everything from a watch to a bevy of smart phones to a supercomputer. What leads you to believe that in only 4 years it will require the supercomputer?

And wouldn't "unpolished incoherent OS with little attention to detail" better fit Vista than Linux (the Gimp notwithstanding)? Like, say,

I've nothing against Haiku - looks promising if still a bit immature - but you don't have to hate Linux to like Haiku. IDIC, dude.
