General Development Technologists fear (and loathe) that which has no purpose. Why must some insist in deriding an operating system like Haiku that doesn't fit their particular needs or precepts of what has a purpose, when, it's advanced enough to have a decent web-browser and productivity software? Today I shall be further offending these people's tastes with a look into LoseThos--a pure 64-bit, preemptive-multitasking, multicored PC operating system that is intended to be used as a secondary operating system for user's recreational programming on their best PC while dual booting a primary system such as Linux or Windows where they do networking and other modern activities such as multimedia. Yes, LoseThos has no networking, no security of any kind, and VGA graphics; but it certainly has a purpose: to be fun! (for programmers, at least)

Terry or "LoseThos" here is a wacky religious troll who frequents various technical forums, and spreads his wisdom.

His reason for not using resolutions above 640x480? he claims that God whispered it in his ear, he would ask seemingly innocuous questions and then randomly type a page full of other "words" he received by God.

I'm not surprised this made the front page, OS development sure is an interesting subject, but, this particular project is quite ridiculous, try reading his website.

Still, maybe he's just very "eccentric".. but IMHO "batshit crazy" fits him better.
