Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

Have you ever used
BeOS, or were you just throwing it in as another OS to trash?

Guy, I am typing this very comment in Net+! I'm a huge fan of BeOS. Not very wise to scream something like that at me.

Are kidding?! BeOS boots in less than 15 seconds. XP and Mandrake take about the same for me: around one minute. I my
experience, as far as boot time goes BeOS beats them all. BeOS is much faster at a lot of other things too.

I just named the first couple of OSs that came to mind. This point isn't OS specific, its about OSs in general. No matter how fast my BeOS is, it's still not instant on.
