Apple It's no secret OSNews has a bit of a thing for the BeOS. I can only speak for myself, obviously, but relatively speaking, BeOS was the best operating system ever made. The man who started all this was Jean-Louis Gassee, former executive at Apple, who founded Be, Inc. in 1991. In the second half of the '90s, Apple was looking for a replacement for its heavily outdated Mac OS, after several failed attempts at developing its own - it came down to Steve Jobs NeXT, or BeOS. Be didn't make it, and Gassee is happier for it.

I have Haiku rc3 on an old dual-core Intel box. I've read some of the BeBook reference material. It looks slick. But what now? At least AROS has a lot of software ported to it.

I am looking forward to the graphically accelerated version of Haiku rc4 or final if it makes the grade though. I've even got an idea for a nested filesystem for BFS for use in implementing code with the same GUI as the rest of the filesystem uses.
