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.

Okay, I know this may sound petty to some, but.....

The big thing that always griped at me about BeOS was that the whole API was implemented with C++ objects. I've disliked C++ ever since I was first exposed to it, and have been actively avoiding it (with much success) for many years. I just find it hard to imagine happiness on a system that requires C++ for any serious native application development.
