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)

Aside from the guy sounding like he's been locked in a basement for waaaay too long (I escaped! It's nice outside!) this is a really really cool project.

Quote of the video, "because signed is pretty silly isn't it?"

I appreciate the beauty of what this fella has done.

The master-slave multicore is -really- interesting to me. I wanted to do something like that back when multi-processor desktops (especially macs) first started popping up.
