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?

For example I really doubt they would build an OS today with a shared library system when 1TB drives can be had for $100.

Right. OSX and Windows don't use ANY shared libraries.

Linux/Unix uses shared libraries... or it DOESN'T, depending on how the distro/project was setup or on how YOU set it up.

With Windows and OSX you get only what the OS/app developers dictate.

Unix has a solid underlying foundation but let's not act like it was created on Mount Sinai.

So, the core of OSX wasn't created on Mount Sinai?
