With these OS's (Mac, and Windows) now having been around for over 20 years. You wonder how they can continue improving and making innovative changes. Well, what if you go back to the drawing board completely, for a new "outside the box" OS. Any ideas on a Desktop-less OS? Something that doesn't use the standard clicking icons and having windows and folders that you store things in? Now I know the hiearchy (sp?) way of the GUI we use today was based on the directory format of very early OS's (i.e. DOS). How could this directory system be re-interpreted into a GUI? I would like to see a 3-D workstation that you operate in real space, a laser projection machine if you will. Anyone follow that? I know I know, this thread's way out there.
