helloSystem: Pre-alpha FreeBSD project chases simplicity and elegance by taking cues from macOS

Personally I always thought Ubuntu's Unity desktop was one of the best rip-offs of OS X. Hoi polloi didn't notice because, shock, the dock-analogue was on the left, not along the bottom. (This being the sort of advanced functionality you probably can't do in Elementary OS, which doesn't even have menus in the menu bar.)

Unity was a better OS X than OS X: you could see how many app instances you had running, you could open new ones with a middle-click, launch them with Control+digit (like WinXP, not that most Windows users ever noticed, either.)
