Syllable, AtheOS AtheOS is a modern, free (GPLed) Operating System written from scratch in C++. A big chunk of the OS is POSIX compliant, supports multiprocessing and it is GUI-oriented (fully OOP). Today we are hosting an interesting interview with the AtheOS creator, Kurt Skauen. Kurt is talking about his views on binary compatibility in future versions, multithreading and the future of his OS in general.

Re: Multithreading

JBQ, there is facts, and then there is how you attribute them. Two different things. I think your argumentation really lacks, not because you are giving false facts, but because of how you describe them with phrases like "worse yet" or "smoke and mirrors". The smoke and mirror passage is especially crappy, because BeOS's multithreaded windows _do_ make the user experience more fluid and responsive. It does so, because access to the _one_ accelerating graphics chip is distributed among windows much more evenly. Frankly, when I use BeOS, Linux, MacOS and Windows in comparisson, I simply don't see your "BeOS is a lazy designed OS" having any real world basis. -Stephan
