What already did work for me is replacing the haiku*.hpkgs with newer versions to update the base system. Worked just fine and it was using the new hpkgs after a reboot :). It's actually how I update my system all the time: Build new haiku*.hpkgs, replace them, reboot. Makes testing your changes much easier ;). ...

Yes. I would suggest that you copy the files you downloaded (like BeBook, BePDF) to a temporary location, or even to your home directory and then install the new nightly. I would also suggest that you create at least one or two BFS partitions for this kind of thing (i.e., updating to a recent nightly), also it would be useful for backups. -- louisdem On Tuesday, April 22, 2014 8:35 PM, Daniel Stritt danielstritt@xxxxxxx wrote: ...

For me Haiku looks good. I like icons, yellow bars on the windows, etc. Transparent windows are useful only, because then you better see bugs in the software ;-). This is not outdated appearance, but normal. Haiku requires improvements on many fronts, the appearance is the last of them. ...

May I just say (not to divert from the topic at hand) but it made me chuckle to read the words googling hard? I completely understand everyone's point of view in this discussion. As many of us are, I am a long time BeOS fan. The current Haiku window design does bring me feelings of nostalgia, for what was and the potential BeOS had. Since Haiku hasn't changed what BeOS looked like over 15 years ago, while others--Mac OS, Gnome, Enlightenment, KDE, Windows, etc., etc.--have changed so dramatically, it is easy to fall into this sense of old or outdated. Obviously, the GUI is the first impression of any computer ...

Making the yellow tab turn to a different color shouldn't be hard to do, other elements might take a little time. I didn't think you were trolling, just thought I would put in my 2 cents. ...

Our SVG format and vectorial iconify is pretty updated. Our general GUI appearace, window tiling, menus, are from the 90's, but, i repeat, our technology is far from the last century. We have a better filesystem than many OSes, our thread management is awesome, but our GUI doesn't reflect that technology. How should haiku-OS appear at the eye of the newbie?, and the newbie could be a very useful crowfunder. ...
