We shouldn't make another Linux... BeOS is a GUI oriented OS. The terminal is there because JLG chose to have POSIX compatibility. Maybe not for R1, but for R1.1 there should be a GUI front-end for every Terminal service. I like it the hard way too, but I will not convince too many of my friends to use OBOS if it is not heavily GUI.

Those like me that want to to it the hard way, and those who want something à la M$ scheduler in the taskbar. François.
