BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

Try loading both modern OS's up with 6 avi streams and 10 MP3 streams and then get back to me about how wonderful the User Environment is.

Even on modern accelerated hardware bot OS's will crawl.

Tried that. Works fine on my aging KDE/Linux-powered laptop. The only bottleneck is my slow hard drive and that bottleneck has nothing to do with the used OS but with the cache setting.

BeOS was a great OS back then but other operating systems catched up and exceeded meanwhile.
