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 This is not outdated appearance, but normal.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Enlightenment, KDE, Windows, etc., etc.--have changed so dramatically, it is easy to fall into this sense of old or outdated.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 ...

I agree the interface looks a little dated due to color schemes and other things (like the 3d look on some buttons... oooh so 1980's) our interface is very close to the flat style that is popular now, the icons I believe are very stylish. 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. ...

I don't think haiku has an interface that is anything close to windows 98, we have stack and tile, tabs that move, a much better deskbar than windows 98 had (When Windows XP was released a lot of people compared that interface to BeOS). These are more useful than Windows 8 Metro IMHO. or the launchpad in MacOSX (although I would like a Mission Control like application for a twitcher). I had a massive fire that stopped me from completing my work on the deskbar replacement for Alpha 2, but eventually I want to finish my work on it. I had two different trains of thought which both derailed... ...
