BeOS & Derivatives As I drag myself from cup of coffee to cup of coffee, led by the soothing sounds of The Eagles, still recovering from last night (happy new year everyone!), it hit me that there is this thing I normally do, this website. Anyway, we've got some good Haiku news on this first day of 2010.

There've been quite a few discussions about the look in these past years, even before the OS itself was kind-of-useable, with some interesting mockups. In any case, don't expect any big makeover before R2 and don't expect anything ground-breaking: Most Haiku users and developers are mostly against glitz-y changes to the UI.

There are a few devs (although not "cove devs") who yearn to move a somewhat more modern style. The mock-ups in http://www.haiku-os.org/community/forum/haiku_ui_mockup are probably closest to what R2 will look like.

I myself think that the best mock-up is this: http://www.haiku-os.org/community/forum/haiku_ui_mockup#comment-123... .

Actually, I agree with you there, your preferred modernization is nicer.

But even the more "modern style" ones are anything but glitzy.

Glitzy not even existing is the best way to go. The best UI will be the one you think about the least while using it, not the one that makes you go, "oh, pretty!"
