BeOS & Derivatives This summer, too, the Haikuproject is part of the Google Summer of Code event. One of the more interesting projects is the Services Kit (draft document!) by Christophe "Shusui" Huriaux, which is an API to facilitate the creation of native web-enabled programs using standard web protocols and data exchange mechanisms.

I did just that in addition to having a few browser windows open, and I'm not noticing any issues at all. CPU use is hovering around 10% and i can't even find a single stutter to complain about.

Now I'll admit that Haiku could probably do this on slower hardware than what I'm running, but I don't think a Q6600 CPU, 4GB RAM, and a Radeon 3870 GPU are that much more powerful than what the typical user runs today.

BeOS did that with a few MHz, <256MB of RAM and software rendering. I guess all that glossy stuff doesn't help if you need a powerful computer to do what was possible 10 years ago.
