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.

The problem is that all the competition can do the same thing, so it's not really showing much that's unique.


The single most common reaction from first time Haiku users is a "wow, this thing is faster and more responsive than anything else I have ever used" type of comment. There is a reason for this. Windows, Linux and Mac users are used to sluggishness and the occasional choppiness in the interface, so they consider it normal.

Try Haiku on the very same hardware that you use your other OSes, and you will finally experience what having a responsive user interface really means. Only then will you come to the realization of how sluggish the other OSes actually are. This cannot be explained with words; you have to experience it, and once you do, I am pretty sure you will agree that it sucks to go back (to Windows, Linux, Mac, etc.). ;)
