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.

Linux, for instance, is based around a core—called a kernel—that was originally designed for use in servers and only later modified for desktop systems.


That's exactly what linus was trying to do: build a giant operating system that would be for huge mainframe servers like his 386 ;/
