Bravo :) pro-choice is very important, not just pro-linux. Because while linux may work great for some of you, it does not for me. BeOS is my bag baby :)
For those that don't know, BeOS is a relatively new OS which handles media very elegantly. Its quick as hell, more stable than anything I've used, and its a whole lotta fun to use too. But its not just a batmobile! You can also go to the grocery store with it. By that I mean that everyday tasks are not a problem in Be, I use it for almost all of my daily computing needs. Including browsing kuro5hin :) There's also a very strong sense of community among us, and a funny as hell CEO :) For BeOS news, check www.benews.com, and for a schitload of tips, check www.betips.net. Check the link in my sig for info and a free-as-in-Beer copy of the Personal Edition for windows. Leenucks user? No problem! PE is for linux too. Check ftp.be.com.
But before you go downloading that beautiful Be, know that because its a new OS, there are still some short comings. The networking stack is undergoing a complete rewrite, which will give approximately %2000 improved performance. And, at the moment there is no hardware OpenGL in BeOS, as that is also going a complete rewrite. Initial benchmarks indicate they kick ass though :) Give it a shot, you might like it.
P.S. To any of the trusteds: just because I like a different OS than you don't kill me for it! You know who you are :)
