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?

Sure some features won't make sense for Haiku, but trying to prevent exploits and privilege escalation in buggy apps is a must for any OS. You can do better than OpenBSD but you have to try.

To the author, I don't know what de Raadt would think of the code, but my guess is "!#$%* C++" or something to the effect ;)
