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?

Single-click is still horribly broken on Windows. I gave up on it in Win7 and set it back, because it's still just as bad as in Win98.

Adding a click to select something is really a wasted action. My mouse is there, so selecting should be implied, if I want to do something.

Single-click works fine, if the interface was not made for double-clicking, then had it removed. The key thing that makes it broken is when hovering, without action, selects an item that you can apply some other action to (IE, select A, move to B, hit del--oops! Rather, what should happen is B should not become selected unless you click on it--problem solved).
