BeOS & Derivatives "FalterCon 2007 took place on August 11, and it went quite well (IMHO, of course). Here I would like to share my personal impressions of the event, as well as make a few (somewhat) related observations. When the news of the WalterCon cancellation broke out and I read about some people being left with non-refundable air tickets, my first reaction was 'OK, let's do something with these guys'. A few emails later with Mike Summers, Bryan Varner and Urias, we had decided on having a community gathering which, as many of you know, was to later be called FalterCon (yes, pun intended). In approximately two weeks, we found a venue (and a good one!), had this website running, prepared some nice promo material, and were able to gather nine people willing to attend. All in all, I think we did pretty well given the very little time we had."

I'm sure there are freaks in every operating system community.

Since the Windows community is larger than any other I would put a large bet it has the largest population of freaks.

Serious `normal` OS users probably have jobs they can not break away from when someone verbally farts a legitimate or improvised gathering.

As much as I liked BeOS as an operating system back in the day, I'm not sure I see how Haiku is a relevant OS for day-to-day personal or commercial business.
