BeOS & Derivatives "So... I have finally gotten around to finishing the Haiku tutorial I set out to complete over a year ago. I was hoping to have it done sooner, but I decided to then prolong graduation for another year. However, my thesis project has been a rocking success, and you can finally see the fruits of my labors. This production should be incorporated into the project as official tutorial material." Okay so yeah it's a tad bit cheesy, but heck, it's BeOS, so shut up.

Haha I got some weird 80s info video wibe from that.

Anyway... the OS itself is more impressive than the actual user interface which just look plain old and boring but still is the thing they seem to promote the most.

Hey, if "plain old and boring" means "fast, lightweight and simple," then I'll take that any day. "Modern" these days seems to be equivalent to "bloated, excessively flashy, slow, heavily processing (both CPU and GPU) intensive, and needless distracting effects." I'll take the Windows Classic interface any day over the one introduced with Vista, and later changed with Windows 7. Similarly, GNOME 2 over GNOME 3 and Xfce above all desktop environments for UNIX-like operating systems.
