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?

"No. Humans are by nature selfish, greedy, self-preserving bastards, often willing to sacrifice others in order to satisfy one or another need, including plain curiosity, and the whole world would actually be better off without us.

Agreed. I often think of this when I read science fiction novels which imply some moral imperative for us to colonize the solar system... or worse yet, the galaxy. And also when I'm visiting our national forests and parks.

If you ever want to really depress yourself, pick up a copy of Sea of Slaughter by Farley Mowatt - it's a catalogue of the (mainly) marine animals that have wiped out since European colonization of North America began.
