BeOS & Derivatives Today there are many operating systems available. Every vendor or community round it tries to make it as good as possible. Having different goals, different legacy and different cultures, they succeed in it more or less. We (end users) end up with big selection of operating systems, but for us the operating systems are usually compromise of the features that we would like to have. So is there an operating system that would fit all the needs of the end user? Is is the BeOS clone Haiku?

Use of double-click: DIE, DIE, DIE. No, wait, begin with years straight of torture, then die.

While I agree, the solution is fairly simple:

I've used that for the better part of a decade now, along with a 3-button mouse - which is configured so that a single-click of the middle button emulates a double-click of the left button.

Noted. Trying Haiku recently has been the only Be-like experience I've had since maybe 1998 or so.
