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)

If you cared to read his website, at the VERY FIRST page, it is stated "Since GPU's vary, LoseThos has no GPU acceleration. This article explains that a GPU is much faster than a CPU. Non-GPU graphics are too slow for high resolutions, so LoseThos will always be 640x480x 16 color. (It takes 1/37th as much CPU power for 640x480x4 compared to 1600x1200x24.)"

Now please quit this religious trolling and go ahead...
