Platinum (classic Mac OS theme) was so wonderfully clean and professional looking. It could be modernized fairly easily too I think.. it'd mainly involve dropping contrast a little to account for the sharpness of LCDs, since the theme was designed around the slight blur given by CRTs.

Windows Classic is as functional as it ever was but IMO it hasn't aged quite as well. It feels more comparable to the theme that Mac OS used prior to the transition to Platinum (pic related). It'd be considerably more difficult to adjust Windows Classic to work well on LCDs.
>>
>>52625582
They look better than Windows 10.
I swear the W10 GUI was made by an apple mole inside microsoft.
>>
>>52625582
Windows Classic was pretty solid. Easy as fuck to design software around that looked consistent, easy as fuck to design a consistent icon set for. Very industrial and tool-like appearance. I wouldn't go totally back to it, but I hope the minimal aesthetic we're getting into now eventually becomes the same deal.

Never liked platinum, most of my OS 7-9 boxes are riced with kaleidoscope.

>>52625758
Other than the icon sets, they were quite minimal.
>>
I do, I grew up with Mac system 7 and 8.

I've tried to recreate the look with Mint, pic related. I've come pretty close, but I think those feels are impossible to recreate.
>>
>>52626498
There's a few good Platinum themes out there for GTK that you could use. If you want to make the fonts accurate, classic Mac OS used Charcoal for titlebars + global menubar text and Geneva for in-window and desktop icon text.

If you really want to push it to the limit, grab TopMenu (https://git.javispedro.com/cgit/topmenu-gtk.git/about/) for XFCE to get a classic Mac OS style global menubar.

I have a PowerMac G4 500MHz I bought for $2 from some guy at a storage unit. I run OS X 10.4.11 and OS 9.2.2 on it. I tried Debian but it was so slow it took over 4 hours to install and takes forever for apt to do anything.

Strangely enough it handles 4chan quite nicely under the last Camino version.

I like OS 9 more than I do 10.4 mainly because of the aesthetic. I don't use the computer for anything productive other than certain Mac games that I can't play on Windows but all in all best $2 I ever spent.

i plan on it

i'm making new arch AUR packages for it since nobody bothered to re-add them after the AUR was upgraded

it's a lot of packages though, and there's extremely little documentation on how to go about building each component of TDE

so far i have the base packages done, though not perfectly (TDE loads, but TWin doesn't start)

i hope at least someone else would be interested in seeing TDE in the AUR again

this is actually spot-on desu
today is really the best time to be alive if you're into computer history or really computing in general

home computing hasn't quite yet become dominated by appliances and gimped, locked-down hardware, and while it doesn't have as much personality as it did in the '80s or even the '90s, innovation still does occur, just not as often. and if you aren't into home shitboxes, there's plenty of surplus enterprise OEM workstations, servers, and other neat cost-no-object hardware you can score for next to nothing

because computers are such a new invention, we are in a position to enjoy pretty much the entire spectrum of computer history if we so please, there's plenty of old hardware out there, and because of the "old=useless" consumer culture that afflicts it, you can experience, enjoy and appreciate that stuff for next to nothing, and get all the advantages of having a fast modern network and almost limitless selections of abandonware provided you know where to look, maintained by people who actually know how to work the hardware and software

in other words, chill out lads and enjoy the revolution before it's all swept away by consumerism, paywalls and forgetfulness

How did you get CDE to tolerate 16:9 resolutions anyway, just using Xorg.conf? Using my Solaris 10 VM on my T420 is suffering.

I have no clue, it's always worked this way. Although it is resistant to change if I mess with xrandr or add a second monitor.

systems (one of each)
in your opinion?

>>52642434
Might have fixed it after they opened CDE up. Solaris CDE is definitely 4:3 by default, not really too knowledgeable enough about configuring X yet to see if I can get it to work.
>>
>>52625582
Yes, because they were specifically designed to be as functional as possible. They did testing and made design choices solely based on how efficient they were. Modern UI design on the other hand is determined by some overpaid asshole's "artistic vision", and whatever the current fads are.

>>
>>52642619
>windows
95. Still minimal enough to be not bloated, still functional enough to let you get shit done. 98 was basically identical.

>linux
CDE. Minimal as fuck, retro looking, small, gets out of your way.

>apple
System 9 was when Apple UI design hit its peak

I love these old things. I can never remember the name. It always makes me happy to see it when I use seamonkey. Aside from that I really don't.
>>
>>52625781
The aesthetic is a consequence of practicality.

Grey is the best for UI features because it is neutral and contrasts the clearest against most content.

The mild psuedo-3d lines clearly outline what is a clickable button, what is a tab, what is a slider, etc.

You can't have the practicality without the aesthetic, beyond a certain point.

Does anyone know of the best themes/icon sets to get Linux to look like Windows 95 or 98? I've seen some screenshots that looked pretty accurate in the past.
>>
>>52647661
Icons: Classic95
Qt4+ has a built in Win9x visual style you can choose in qtconfig for Qt4 and set as an environment variable for Qt5.
Gtk2+Gtk3: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/?content=165206

Most window managers have a Windows Classic alike titlebar theme.
>>
>>52625582
They were OK I guess. Definitely don't miss extension hell on the pinnacle of stability that was Mac OS 9 though.
>>
I really can't stand the intuitiveness of most software nowadays. I get that you don't want to waste a lot of time explaining or thinking, and on phones it's usually a matter of space.
But putting the main menu behind some weird icon and having a menu bar right beside it just confuses me.
I'd rather go
> I want to do action x
> which is probably considered editing
> open edit menu
> it might be a filter
> open filter menu in edit menu
> there it is

Then again, nothing is going to safe you when they fuck up menus.

Guys, is there a GTK theme for this? It looks so nice. Especially the Apply one in the OP.

There was never a chance of that. C= and /|\ were mortal enemies, with the engineers and management going from one to the other in a kind of betrayal. Not to mention both had utterly incompetent management at the time.

I was an Atari kid, but I've got to hand it to the Amiga and its superior OS and spectacular custom chip setup. Atari had MIDI and Amiga had genlocks so they both had their niches but they died a disgraceful death, enemies to the last breath. Apple might have died with them too, but for Aldus and Photoshop.

Amiga still lives on as a shuffling zombie IP corpse and a string of shell companies trying to make money from a long-dead platform with a few dedicated stalwarts. Atari's just dead, with Infogrames having bought their old arcade games and nothing else.

There are still GEMDOS-like echoes of the VMS & CP/M legacy in parts of DOS and Windows, but it's a forgotten cul-de-sac.

Shit as it was, the commoditisation of the PC and its modularity and clonability were the ultimate winners.
>>
>>52625582
Yes. Designed to do what they were meant to and that's it, actually created a better aesthetic than a lot of other professional designers have.
>>
>>52625824
Does xfce look very 90s at all? Haven't tried it personally but what I've seen of it didn't look like much of the same aesthetic at all.

Try using the nightly builds, senpai. 4chan works except for webms, and you can download those and play them in the media player.

This fag here again. Developers have been made aware of the webm problem so it looks like there will be a fix in the future.

Mutt and OfflineIMAP have been successfully ported. Expect them to show up in the repositories soon.

4chan settings including theme don't seem to store right, but if you set everything up properly and use the "export settings" button it can generate a link that re-enables all of them. Set that link up as a bookmark.
