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)

RE: Why ?

Member since:

Why people still losing time creating new OSes that looks similar to 80's ones ?

I they have too much time they can help resolving problems of Linux or any common sub-system.

Resolving issues/bugs help many millions of users, recreating the wheel every time is a huge time loss...

Spoken like a true believer. I love the way guys try to portray contributing to Linux is some kind of moral imperative, it manages to come off as both insecure jealousy and insane zealotry at the same time.
