BeOS was yet another innovative technical product that was built too far before its time and has subsequently passed away. I bought a copy in the late 90's and still have the CD lying around at home.

The BeOS legacy lives on, in the form of Mac OS X's file system metadata features and as I have just stumbled across, the open source Haiku project. It would be nice to have an open source, simple, consistent, fast but lightweight desktop operating system option.
