I only had the vaguest idea of what I was going to be doing, but on the first day Eben and I sat down and played with the Raspbian desktop for half an hour, then he asked me “do you think you can make it better?

Update – bug fixes Some users have reported problems with the main menu crashing since installing the PIXEL update.

Windows If you open a window, you’ll see that the window frame design has now changed significantly.

Sam Alder and Alex Carter, the guys responsible for all the cartoons and graphics you see on our website, have been sweating blood over these for the last few months, with Eben providing a watchful eye to make sure every pixel was exactly the right colour!

So PIXEL it is, which now officially stands for “Pi Improved Xwindows Environment, Lightweight”.

The first thing you’ll notice on rebooting is that the trail of cryptic boot messages has (mostly) gone, replaced by a splash screen.

These always made menus look a bit crowded, and didn’t really offer any improvement in usability, not least because it wasn’t always that obvious what the icon was supposed to represent…

The menus look cleaner and more readable as a result, since the lack of visual clutter now makes them easier to use.
