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.

I used to be excited for BeOS. It was a promise to get my PC off of Windows, and in my head at least, make it more Mac like. But unfortunately between 2001 and now, I've grown up, got a job, so I just bought a Mac instead.

I do applaud what these people have done with Haiku.
