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.

Well, in general you are right.

But some enthusiasts (like myself) not only judge by features, but also by the feeling this OS gives. Of course it looks somewhat dated, lacks many useful applications, is still aplha etc. But nonetheless, it is fun to use! And stack&tile is a great addition ;)

On my netbook (Acer one a110) it boots and operates really fast. And now that WPA2 is supported, I can use wifi as well. It is nice to play around and brings back the fun in computing; you are in control. But it is nowhere near as useful as Windows/OSX/Ubuntu.

Nice video btw.
