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)

I thought the video sounded a bit like drunken uncle Wally or the Dustin Hoffman character from Rainman.


ASD would explain the "ego", but as Kroc already said it's not really any of our business.

Do we judge the technical merits of Oracle DB based purely on Larry Ellison being a complete tool? Or likewise OpenBSD and Theo?

This was a general post, not directed at anyone in particular.
