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.

Hang on a minute. If you're talking kernels, both Linux and Haiku are POSIX systems. POSIX is codified UNIX.


While Haiku does support POSIX, it is not a "POSIX system", and not a *NIX. POSIX is simply an addition, not the base for it.

After all, Windows supports POSIX too, if you want it. Does that make it a "POSIX system" as well?
