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?

Not everyone's dream is a bleached silicone blonde in a new Corvette on a sunny beach, many would prefer a drive by their lonesome in a vintage Lotus in the Scottish hills. In a drizzle. I'll take the Lotus, thank you.


I like that analogy - Haiku: the Lotus 7 of OSes (when an MGB just seems too over-engineered).
