BeOS & Derivatives Ars 'reviews' Haiku, and concludes that "at the end of the day, Haiku may not be much more than an interesting diversion, something to play with on a spare bit of hardware on a rainy afternoon just for a bit of fun. But even if it amounts to no more than that, Haiku is still worth checking out." The article is a bit scant on content, but it does give me the opportunity to link to my review of Haiku alpha 1 from 3 years ago. I try Haiku every now and then to see if that review needs an update, but it always amounts to 'it got a bit more stable' - which is fantastic, but not a reason to redo it.

instead of just getting your information from iFanboy echo-chambers.


Oh, grow up. I own a Nexus 7 (as well as an iPad), I'm typing this under Windows 7 on a Lenovo Thinkpad and I own 2 XBoxes, and a Wii which I use for Nexflix (no AppleTV here...) <sarcasm>Yes, obviously I'm such a fanboy it hurts.</sarcasm>

If really you have to reduce everything to a black and white argument over 2 companies, that's very sad for you. People can, you know, like more than one thing without being specifically biased... (I know shocking revelation!!!)

Rant aside - Microsoft are desperately trying to do Hardware like it is going out of fashion. If they carry on at a similar rate, 10 years from now I see it as perfectly feasible there will be no more software, outside of their potted ecosystem.
