So you’ve installed Haiku from a recently nightly (or sometime soon, the R1 beta) and you’re launching applications from the Deskbar menu (the blue â€˜leaf’ menu). Perfect, but there are a few more options to investigate if you want to quickly launch your favourite programs.
Neat little overview. For a second there I thought they were replacing Deskbar, and I nearly had a heart attack.

Haiku is moving forward. The latest monthly report:
