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.

Listen, I loved BeOS and love Haiku as well. But, you have to be honest in your critisims of other operating systems. Throwing around things like "free of MS_DOS PC-AT legacy plague" Is just plain dishonest. There isn't any DOS legacy left in windows 7. If there is, what is it and why does it present a problem?

I think you are just commenting about the speed and responsiveness of the gui. Cool. Just leave it at that :" Hakui has a more responsive Gui". Don't blame it on DOS or pc-at, thats just absurd. Otherwise we could likewise say that Windows is better because it doesn't have that legacy at& t hobbit design plague.
