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.

This is nothing at all wrong with saying "everything except <list>". I'm not sure whether or not I would have put in the comma. And it might have been a problem if the comma had been a period. But the way it is written is perfectly fine, and a completely different situation than "very unique".


Ah yes, on re-reading I see he was stating exceptions to (rather than degrees of) an absolute. Mea culpa, constant exposure to poor writing must be causing my brain to atrophy (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).
