BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

* less than 10-sec boot time
No one really cares about this since no one really resets his computer 10-20 times a day to see the difference.


Curious: whenever there's a discussion about whatever improvement in boot time, usually the following discussion contains *a lot* of messages: people do care about fast boot time.

* no lagging, no latency in user interactions Linux/Vista feel fast on Core2 Duo with 4GB of RAM... MacOS X is fast too.

1) So this means that to have a fast desktop on a laptop you have a battery life measured in seconds?
2) No everybody is rich: think about the OLPC..

As for the rest, I agree with you, BeOS is no more superior to the competition on these points.
