warning: contains gradients and ignore all design (obviously)
So in the Windows 7 ideas thread - i had a couple of 3d ideas that ive been going over. What was bugging me - is that both the fly in desktop - and flip3d 2 (circular version) are only a means to an end. not an end in themself.
so i tried to picture - what if the entire UI was the means?
anyway - i thought of these an hour ago - and got out of bed to do some quick drafts. ROUGH drafts..
the main idea is wheels
(UI wize - and using scroll wheel on mouse over which ever screen area) *note - a scroll wheel mouse is as mandatory as a monitor
so gone are window holders/borders - as you are in a 3d space
Flip3D - 3.0 (entire UI - not separate)
Cue the windows toilet paper edition jokes
edit: some other 9ers suggested wheels - but they had sideways text / went the wrong way
spin them sideways = infinate and no-sideways text..
edit2 - thing i like abou this is there is no alt-tab. no clicking start. no windows key - i can use one hand + scroll wheel for every space on the screen (but those things could all be still wok if you wanted them). me ? im lazy. i liked the one finger operation (for most getting around)
