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.

POSIX is a second-class citizen to the Be API, and as such, most of the POSIX API that Haiku supports is just "bolted" on top of Haiku to provide a certain level of compatability with non-native code. In fact, a lot of the POSIX compatability has only been implemented in the last few years for this exact reason.

BeOS, although it had a certain degree of POSIX compatability, was nothing compared to what Haiku has gained in the last few years
