BeOS & Derivatives "Ultimately, Haiku represents a different way of viewing your personal computer. If you think that software shouldn't be riddled with bugs and incompatibilities and inefficiencies, if you hate being forced to swap out your hardware and software every few years because 'upgrades' have rendered them obsolete, and if you find that the idea of using an operating system that's fast, responsive, and simple is refreshingly novel and appealing, then maybe, just maybe, Haiku is for you." What fascinates me the most is that Haiku's not working on a tablet version. How delightfully quaint.

The "How delightfully quaint." comment at the end of the news item is... strange.

I couldn't decide it was sarcasm or not.

Indeed.. and its not like BeOS had never had a tablet version either.

I think its just the fact that nobody wants to do it at the moment.

Yeah, That bit hit a nerve for some reason.

Not everyone needs or wants a tablet UI :p
