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?

I'd say Haiku is no more or less than a good start.

A lot of work. The GUI and "user experience" should be the least of worries. And yes, I've looked at the code.

And like others above, I am also a little skeptical about the assumption that the so-called "legacy" is solely a bad thing.

This kind of pompous advocacy leads to nowhere.

Be humble.
