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.

It's not that Windows is horrible. It's just that when you keep backwards compatibility for as long as they have you wind up with multiple API's to do the same thing. You wind up saddled with decisions that made sense when the limits of technology lead you to certain tradeoffs, but new tradeoffs may make more sense in the present.
