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.

The topic of web services degraded to "I don't like how the window manager looks" and "the menus are too difficult to navigate" crap arguments.

I used BeOS for years and found it far superior to Windows and Mac OS at the time. If BeOS can manage to come to Beta, support all the modern networking requirements, I'd hop on board and develop apps for it - I assume others, old timers and newbies alike will do the same.

It has a wonderful, minimalistic interface that is functional, pervasive multi-threading, a great file system (maybe not the fastest, but great to work with), and the API was easy to work with as well.

I use Windows 7 and Mac OS X mostly these days, but I would trade all the glitz and glam in a heartbeat for a version of BeOS that had the look and feel of 4.5 and up that I could work on for web development.
