BeOS & Derivatives Since I encountered BeOS 5 Personal Edition, my experience with BeOS PE led me to purchase the BeOS 5 Professional Edition, which I used for some years. I am not ashamed to say that I love using this OS. After the demise of Be Corp., I still used BeOS as my "main OS" since it would do everything that I needed to do, except for gaming and academic works. I closely followed all the developments of the BeOS contenders after Be's fall... Until Zeta OS became the leading standard for a short time. I purchased every Zeta OS release that YellowTab produced. It is currently my favorite BeOS version today.

What would be a correct way of using the word 'except' then?

Maybe he wanted to say:
Haiku meats all of my needs excluding the list of items below:
1. Gaming
2. Academic works
(In other words "it would do everything that I needed to do, except for gaming and academic works").

;)
Back on topic, I enjoyed both reviews of Haiku and will give the alpha a go.
