Looks very, very impressive. Thanks Novell.
wow... Sweet environment. Kind of like OS X
Eh, that stuff is cool, but I wouldn't use it. IMO, a window manager should provide the basic functionality for managing windows and that's it. As long as I have my six desktops and my keybindings, I'm totally happy. Preferably, it uses up as little CPU and RAM as possible so I can use my resources for the applications I'm actually using.
if i wanted extra, i'd run windows.
Thats great guys. You'd probably be happy with the command line alone. 99% of the rest of us like slick graphics The great thing is that these graphics capabilities will probably beat Vista to market.
and still will only be used by linux users....
A Linux desktop used by Linux users?
because joe schmoe wont change over
From the looks of this video, the most advanced GUI technology is made by Novell and runs on Linux. If they can polish the thing, it will sell to more desktop users.
Who knows google may get involved soon
If they do, and they're smart, they'll use this shit.
I've always wanted a cube desktop.
I wouldn't be happy with just the commandline, and I'm not saying that stuff isn't incredibly slick and very cool. I'm just saying that I wouldn't use it. If they put that stuff out, it'll be one more great selling point for Linux, and I'll show it off to everyone I know (and many people I don't).
One of the things I love about Linux is that it looks and works however the user wants it to look and work. For people who like pretty things and slick graphics and stuff, there's the kind of stuff in that video. For those of us who just want performance, there's OpenBox.
Man, that rocked. I'm very optomistic now because that's exactly the direction I've been waiting for linux to go in, to approach the level of friendliness and usability (and polish) of OS X. I now novell if this is the future of linux.
some of that 3d desktop stuff is so useless.......
who remembers VRML?
It may be useless now, but it will not be in the future. These capabilities will provide a usability revolution as... revolutionary as the 2D GUI once did. Its just still in its infancy.
something tells me that the guys with linux arent going to be switching over to windows over this either... just because people with windows dont switch over doesnt mean its going to be a failure
