Hi Guys!<br><br>i&#39;m writing a thesis on &quot;the user-centerd desktop&quot;.<br>as part of the thesis i&#39;m doing a prototype too.<br><br>this is something i really longed to do for a long time and am now about to<br>
start. since i&#39;m under a tight schedule and am not too good a programmer with<br>not too much experience it ain&#39;t gonna be something big.<br><br>but anyway. read some boox. surfed around.<br>found the plasma project (
<a href=""></a>). <a href=""></a> (<a href=""></a>). screenweaver<br>hx (<a href=""></a>). of course there is superkaramba ...
<br><br>tend to doing it in haxe (eclihaxe + screenweaver hx) ... pretty sure about<br>that since the only language i&#39;m really fluent in is actionscript and haxe is<br>not far from it (wanted to do it in flex before ... but prefer haxe since
<br>it&#39;s all open source)<br><br>did some research on hci (designing interactions) ... am going to do empirical<br>user research .... non-technical-useres ..<br>am doing some research on the piling metapher and lifestreams &amp; co at the mom.
<br><br>bumptop by the way with it&#39;s piling metaphor is really something very<br>appealing and those guys with their thesis did exactly what i&#39;m going to do.<br>(<a href=""></a>
)<br><br>well, i&#39;m not exactly sure what i wanna say or question with this, but hey,<br>found out about this mailing list and thought - hey, sounds great, give it a<br>shot.<br><br>so if you got any ideas, proposals, whatever, here i am

You might want to consider looking at <a href=""></a>
they have the most unique approach to a user oriented desktop that I
have seen to date they are using Mozilla engine w/XUL so it shouldn&#39;t
be too difficult to program.<br>
