BeOS & Derivatives Today marks an entire week of using Haiku as my primary operating system. This is my first PC to get the most out of any BeOS related operating system to date. My old 200MHz Toshiba ran R5 PE just fine but without any networking. My eMachine ran Zeta just fine, but once again, there were networking issues (and Zeta was pronounced dead around this time). In the age of the Internet, this pretty much forced me away from BeOS and its decendants until now.

And Linux will be another 4 years ahead.


We might as well argue whether a tractor is better than a motorcycle, because Linux and Haiku have about that much in common.

"Your motorcycle sucks because it can't haul out tree stumps as well as my John Deere."
"Oh yeah? Well your tractor has horrible acceleration!"

See how absurd that sounds?

That's not a very good analogy. Is Linux the tractor or the motorcycle?

Actually, I thought it was the tank.

Because...?

The tractor - Linux is a heavyweight, industrial-strength OS. Haiku, by contrast, is meant to be small, fast, simple, and focused mainly on desktops.
