Did you ever read the BeOS Bible ? Look it up on line and purchase a copy. BeOS was and Haiku are not trying to be like Windows or copy anything from it. If you want to have a Windows desktop and experience then use Windows. If you want to experience what Haiku is building great. Because it is a different computing experience than Windows. That's the point of what the Haiku Developers are working on. To give everybody a choice, another option.

This is a very inappropriate reply. He was just trying to explain his question for newbies by giving an example from a very popular OS. BeOS, IN FACT, does has tmp folder. That doesn't make it a Windows clone. Please try not to be so zealous, everyone is on the same team here.

I am a newbie in this community. I haven't even downloaded and tried to install Haiku yet, but I wanted to say that we should try to be a bit more friendly.
