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)

In your uneducated estimation with zero experience with him personally


I won't comment on most of this rant, apparently I've hit a sensitive spot. However, "zero experience" is just not true, or you'd have to define "personally" as "in real life". The latter I cannot claim, but as a regular of the OSDev forums, I can assure you I have had more than enough experience with the guy to ascertain that this is not someone you want to deal with.
