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

There is no shortage of desktops, but most are based on KDE and Gnome, which manage to fail spectacularly, as he convincingly argues if you read through it all (link posted above by another commentard).

You can use them but have to constantly patch them to make them usable and you are held hostage to their next crazy idea, or you can roll your own. I guess developing his own desktop on a BSD is in some ways a challenge to Linux to sort its act out when it comes to GUI usability.
