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)

I do not think that (badly spelled) word means what you think it means: verifiable sources, please, or you're maligning a group of people unfairly due to your own ignorance.

"zealot" is a different word and meaning from what you seem to be lumping in as a trait, and OCD tendencies or being an extremist about a pet cause/project is also not connected with what you think it means. Sometimes, people just like to toot their own horns: surely you don't do that in regards to anything you do, do you? ;)
