General Development Technologists fear (and loathe) that which has no purpose. Why must some insist in deriding an operating system like Haiku that doesn't fit their particular needs or precepts of what has a purpose, when, it's advanced enough to have a decent web-browser and productivity software? Today I shall be further offending these people's tastes with a look into LoseThos--a pure 64-bit, preemptive-multitasking, multicored PC operating system that is intended to be used as a secondary operating system for user's recreational programming on their best PC while dual booting a primary system such as Linux or Windows where they do networking and other modern activities such as multimedia. Yes, LoseThos has no networking, no security of any kind, and VGA graphics; but it certainly has a purpose: to be fun! (for programmers, at least)

Reinventing the wheel is mostly just borring. Creating another way to move stuff based on your own designs, is Fun! However, I completely disagree with his approach to SMP, and consequently must write my own operating system from scratch in Eifell.

Once Eiffel has good concurrency support (either a extended scoop approach or something completely different like for example a csp based solution) it would be worth a try ;)
