Welcoming to switchers from macOS. Not just a theme. Not a clone of anything, but something with which the long-time Mac user should feel instantly comfortable.

Wouldn't it be hilarious if we got the year of the BSD desktop before Linux?
>made my creator of appimage This is very exciting to see. Mac OSX 10.4 era desktop was comfy af.

Is this only for macs?
FreeBSD coders run their BSD in a MacOS virtual machine. In a reversal of this, now someone tries to make FreeBSD look like MacOS. What made MacOS feel like MacOS (till it became shitted post-Snow Leopard) was the cohesive design of it. Not sure a BSD can emulate this. It is not only the menu bar and dock that make MacOS MacOS
>>7324 it's for any amd64 computer, no arm builds yet
There's another similar project in the works that appears to be more geared towards your average desktop user: https://ravynos.com/
>>6830 >Wouldn't it be hilarious if we got the year of the BSD desktop before Linux? Sorry to sound negative, but cloning the Mac's design (which I quite like btw) won't set the world on fire. Linux is plenty usable and has reached a 'critical mass' of support (more programs, more hardware) that makes it the go-to alternative.
>>9222 freebsd can run loonix apps pretty effortlessly, a well-designed freebsd desktop distro modelled after macos could potentially wipe the floor with most desktop loonix distributions

Was playing with hellosystem in a virtual machine a while ago and I'd say it's got some potential. I'm looking forward to seeing where this project goes in the future for sure.

>>9232 What's that, the window buttons are arranged like classic Mac OS. I like that. But then they should have made it look like classic Mac OS all the way.
>>9233 It's funny because older versions of hellosystem had the exact same button layout as OSX. Guess they felt they wanted to change things up a little and be "different" in some small way.
