BeOS & Derivatives "Starting with hrev45522, address space layout randomization (ASLR) and data execution prevention (DEP) are available in Haiku. These two features, which have actually become a standard in any modern OS, make it much harder to exploit any vulnerability that may be present in an application running on Haiku, thus generally improving system security."

Mine identity-maps and is ring-0-only. These two aspects are what give my operating system its unique character. Yeah, it fragments, (in theory) and yeah it has no protection. These are trade-offs. You do the math. You're going to express false indignation and try to jedi-mind trick that there no reason to do it. I don't think we need to explain the advantages of no memory map change losses and no privilege level change losses and the total simplicity, if the code interests you.

Yes, mine is 64-bit, since 2007. Why 640x480? Because God said so. It turns-out you need a GPU for higher resolutions (for 60 fps games). There are so many GPUs. Plus starting the job of supporting all those GPUs is hopeless. Mine is really really simple.
