A look at old desktop themes

October 20, 2021 — BarryK

I am planning a new theme for EasyOS 3.1. The theme in 3.0 and earlier has been in use for a long time, really do need a change.

Not sure what version started the current theme, probably most, maybe all, of the EasyOS Dunfell-series. A snapshot:


Rather than design a new theme for 3.1, I am thinking of recycling an old theme. So, what do we have to choose from...

EasyOS Buster64 2.3


EasyPup Buster64 2.3.3


Quirky April64 7.0.4, Quirky Tahr 6.0.5


Quirky Beaver64 8.7.1, Quirky Xerus64 8.5


Quirky Pyro64 0.2, Quirky Unicorn 6.2


Quirky Slaq64 8.1.6


Quirky Werewolf64 7.4


Quirky Xerus64 8.1.6


Fascinating! Could one of these be used as the basis for EasyOS 3.1?

I'm thinking that rather than go for one of the "safe" themes, muted-blue or grey, might choose something a bit less common, such as the peach-red or the brown themes shown above. If you have a preference, let me know, I will start a thread on the forum.

That brown theme is interesting, but I don't have the original without the "Quirky Xerus" text.
