moment liric (si tehnologic, desigur)

In the second half of the 90s, a company called Be boldly entered the personal computing market with an operating system that was unlike any other. BeOS was highly modular and responsive, booted in mere seconds, made extensive use of threading, gave developers rich C++ APIs, and had a database-like 64-bit filesystem with support for journaling, indexing, and metadata. BeOS offered all of this while Microsoft was selling Windows 95 and Apple was still struggling to deliver features like preemptive multitasking.

Haiku, the future of BeOS, is pure poetry.
