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?

The basic architecture of shared libraries + smallish program specific code hasn't changed in a long time.


Yes it has. Like already mentioned, the use of shared libraries is at its best when too much is not shared. But today your typical GUI application can easily depend on at least twenty libraries. For laughs, run ldd for say Firefox.
