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.

I'm not saying it runs everywhere like Linux based OS's, just saying that hardware support is much better than one would think by looking around like you did. USB is here since ages, the rest, although nice additions, isn't vital for my use case, though you must admit having well supported wifi support under linux distros is pretty recent too. Make your own opinion, the hw compat lists you cite are either not really maintained or explicitly non extensive.

I'm sorry, i believe i answered the best i could to your (rhetoric) question, by saying "I" benefit from it and i know personally other people that do too, all for different reasons i tried to summarize. Anything else on my part would be pure speculation. Other people "benefiting" from it please speak up!

The project doesn't try to define a "benefiting target", the only reliable target is the guys using it and developing it at the same time. They are making things nice for themselves and sharing to people alike, not trying to "take over the world" or reach some hypothetical market or people.
