To play off the system sounds contest, I was wondering if there would be an interest in a visual theme contest for Haiku R1.
It would be great to have selectable visual themes for well known UI/UX decor…
Haiku (already exists)
What do folks think? Maybe could even come up with system sound collections that tie well into the above themes.
@jscipione is working on BeOS 5 and Mac OS 8 themes. Probably they will be ready until R1.
I´d love to see a perfect NeXTStep theme aswell.
And maybe some Amiga´ish inspired ones.
We already have some themes including a gonx-like one, they just need some fixing.
Yes that’s the problem . Most of the efforts in this direction have been into making Haiku look even more like it’s a thing from the 90s. While the nostalgia is nice and all, it’s not the first aspect of Haiku we should show to new/future users.
I dont see a problem. People are different. One cannot satisfy EVERYONE. I´d like to have the option to make the look and feel whenever i like. And i really like the NeXTStep UI.
I’m not actually working on a Mac OS 8 theme… just the decorator, although a theme would be cool.
