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.

After all, Windows supports POSIX too, if you want it. Does that make it a "POSIX system" as well?


Any operating system that is able to pass the POSIX certification tests, regardless in what form is a POSIX system.

Windows POSIX subsystem (Interix), althought not certified, is compatible with POSIX.1-1990.
