BeOS & Derivatives Even more Haiku news today. Oliver Ruiz Dorantes, who will be monitoring GSoC student Salvatore Benedetto coming summer, has started work on what will become an office suite for Haiku. His blog already shows the first screenshots of the project. He is seeking for help on the project, so if you have the experience, feel free t help him out. Also, a new batch of icons has been added to Haiku.

BeOS/Haiku/Zeta has a responsiveness Linux and BSD can't remotely compare with

I don't know what your benchmarks are for such a statement, but I have excellent -- if not superior -- "responsiveness" using Linux on the same hardware which I ran BeOS. That's apples:oranges now because the difference comes down to continued development and improvements in Linux and stagnation with BeOS development.

And it also begs the question of which distro and configuration are you comparing BeOS/et al? Linux distros aren't monolithic with respect to how they load and operate -- each is unique, and there's a lot of diversity in how users set up systems. "Stripped" distros like DSL and Vector run a lot faster and more efficiently than something bloated up with eyecandy and bulkier apps and libs. Are you comparing KDE/Gnome to BeOS? Or are you comparing something that's actually on par with BeOS/Haiku?
