I'd bump this post up to a 6 if I could. BeOS was my OS of choice for years. Ran my websites on it, mail server, all sorts of cool things. Fantastic operating system whose simple and clean interface is refreshing and becomes more and more attractive as you use it. ;)

I just hope it will run on standard hardware out there... I will buy a special PC just for Haiku when it is ready, even if I have to sell a couple of my macs to do it!
