Tired of having the words “Welcome to the Beos Shell” greet you every time you launch the terminal?

Navigate via Tracker to /boot/beos/etc/profile. You’ll need to make this file writeable. Right-click and select Get Info, then click on the little arrow at the lower left next to “Permission.” Make the file Writable by Owner.

Next, double click on profile, and change this line:

 echo -e "
Welcome to the BeOS Shell.

to something like this:

echo -e "
Welcome to the NeoLAB.
