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?

The Earth certainly doesn't care what we do to it.

What a typically anthropocentric human answer. Countless other species would be better off without us. Starting with the mountain gorillas... and dolphins. The latter having larger brains than humans, a greater brain mass to body mass ratio than humans, and more convoluted brain surface than humans. (Those being empirically good general indicators of intelligence.) And of course, countless extinct species would be better off without us, including, but certainly not limited to homo sapiens neanderthalensis.

In large numbers, we humans are very, very ugly. And very, very destructive. And very, very unmindful of those facts.
