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's a better designed operating system, almost entirely free of the MS-DOS

It's entirely free of MS-DOS. Just like any other modern operating system today, except FreeDOS.

and PC-AT legacy plague.

It runs on PC, doesnt it? It supports IDE devices, right? Then it's not free of the PC-AT plague.

you'd be flabbergasted at just how incredibly responsive Haiku is.

Not really, I used BeOS so I know how responsive it is. On the other hand, DOS-SHELL was pretty responsive too..

It boots in around 10 seconds

It's a better designed operating system

There are more parameters to better design than raw speed.
