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 run out of arguments, resort to the spelling...

word means what you think it means

As with many mental disorders, the name of the disorder can also be used for people that exhibit characteristic traits for that disorder. I do not know for certain the guy suffers from autism, but he sure shows many signs.

"zealot" is a different word (...) Sometimes, people just like to toot their own horns

Gosh, really. I used "zealot" here as "fanatic", and no, I'm not talking about being fanatical about ones own project, but being fanatical about all the details of the project, even when rightly critisized (e.g. the rather ridiculous idea that on modern video cards 640x480 in 16 colour mode is faster than, say, 640x480 in 16-bit true colour).
