BeOS & Derivatives Today there are many operating systems available. Every vendor or community round it tries to make it as good as possible. Having different goals, different legacy and different cultures, they succeed in it more or less. We (end users) end up with big selection of operating systems, but for us the operating systems are usually compromise of the features that we would like to have. So is there an operating system that would fit all the needs of the end user? Is is the BeOS clone Haiku?

I would say that the "availability" of software for Windows is no doubt the biggest BUT also (with Mac) the most expensive. So the sheer number of applications for Windows is only half the story, I have many more applications on my linux machine - because they are free.

PS: I am not expecting/advocating that all softwares should be free, just stating facts.
