I was reading a bit about BeOs, which I tested and loved more than ten years ago, just before they ceased to exist. Such a shame all their work is lost and others have built a new OS on the API, which is now more or less usable for every day use. The new version is called haiku. That is at the moment. There have been some name changes, stopped projects, others back on it etc, etc. Anyway I’m posting this, because one of the great features was the webbrowser which showed error messages in haiku form. Read them here.Errormessages were a lot more common then. At least in my experience. Showing a haiku is a lot less frustrating than 404.
