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've used BeOS and various versions of it a few years ago and it was still small, fast and efficient. Bug-free, probably not, but it did run as fast as Haiku does. And contrary to popular opinion, it was able to run more than demos of teapots and 10 videos at once: I could browse the web, listen to music, process documents, spreadsheets, presentations, play games, chat, even develop on it. And it supported all my hardware.
