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.

It also helped that BeOS native apps were small and clean, and thus would launch so fast that you could practically disregard the delay entirely.

Yeah, we'll see what happens to 'small and lean' and apps popping up instantly if/when they start porting apps like Photoshop to it ;) hehe

BTW: I tried clicking on menus in several apps in Windows, as well as the Start menu. I don't know how long it took for them to appear, but I could not perceive any kind of delay.
