GNU, GPL, Open Source "So what is the state of the Hurd? Is it vaporware, like Duke Nukem Forever? Fortunately not: the code exists, there is still work going on (for instance as part of Google Summer of Code), and there are even some relatively functional Hurd distributions. Let's look first at the code and the current architecture, and then at the Hurd distributions."

No BeOS at the time was very primitive. Poor network support, poor printing support, wobbly kernel. People compare BeOS 5 with the Mac OS but at the time when Apple purchased NeXT the BeOS was very rough.

Though in time it go to be great.

Yeah, I ran it with Bone and some other modifications, but it was... I don't know... "fun" to me. I still prefer the interface over Mac OS. I still hold out for Haiku to go Beta.
