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?

BeOS was a 'Copland'-esque Mac OS that technically did work, but UI-wise I'd be just as happy with Mac OS 8 or 9 when it comes to completeness and consistency in look and feel.

At the same time, this is somewhat what Haiku offers - and as such I'll be looking forward tobeing able to take it for a spin

That said, I's still trade Gnome or KDE in favour of Mac OS 9 GUI on top of *ANY* modern *nix OS any day!
