BeOS & Derivatives "Ultimately, Haiku represents a different way of viewing your personal computer. If you think that software shouldn't be riddled with bugs and incompatibilities and inefficiencies, if you hate being forced to swap out your hardware and software every few years because 'upgrades' have rendered them obsolete, and if you find that the idea of using an operating system that's fast, responsive, and simple is refreshingly novel and appealing, then maybe, just maybe, Haiku is for you." What fascinates me the most is that Haiku's not working on a tablet version. How delightfully quaint.

But the main focus, contributions and design decisions focused on server performance (insert here the famous XKCD strip about 4096 cores and flash video). "Originally" may be factually wrong by overlooking the first few years of linux, but is mostly right.

Whereas BeOS, and thus Haiku, has some design decisions desktop oriented.
