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.

I think people are missing the point here, Haiku is trying to rebuild an old OS called BeOS that was truly amazing back then, it was so amazing that even for today standards is not obsolete. BeOS code was sold and archived , what Haiku is trying to do is huge and the have almost achieved it. It is still in Alpha near Beta so it must have bugs.

No, no one is missing the point. Everyone on OSNews just like to argue. ;) And if the topic were about flowers they would somehow wrap in their competitive battles regarding OS X, Linux and Windows.

LOL. I'd vote you up, but I commented already and OSN has that ridiculous limitation on voting...
