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?

And this isn't a problem in windows? I've had broken hardware numerous times from their shoddy automated updates.

No it isn't.

Windows doesn't routinely break working video and wireless drivers with minor updates. That's because they provide a stable abi for hardware companies to work with. The same goes for OSX.
