What do you think that will be like?
Too early to tell
I've just gotten word that in order to buy OS XI, you must allow Assisted Living Dracula to suck 1 pint of blood from you.... NOT a pleasent experience..
They will probably need to go with completely transparent windows as Windows is doing with Vista all so that the huddled masses cant say "But I cant read what it says in the window 3 layers below what I am doing!"
Add to that window deformations when moving as Linux has with XGL, and then you are getting close to something...
Add to that the ability to have multiple mouses working simultaneously and independantly as Linux is doing with Xorg7.1 and the ability to set up two separate computers with their own displays side by side and be able to move your mouse between the two computers as if they were one.
i can say one thing, it won't be universal
See the screenshot...
I don't think it will be called "Mac OS XI".
It'll probably have some weird Apple name (think Aqua).
Although it will not be released for many more years, I think OS XI will incorporate a completely new type of UI. Apple has already been playing around with the technology after all...
I'm getting nauseous just looking at that screenshot.
Hahaha.........Assisted Living Dracula needs to become it's own show....spawn off from ATHF.
OS XI will be just like OSX but with I at the end
.....but it will require you to implant an iPod Invisa in your ear to link with.
Perhaps Apple will get rid of the "X" and simply name it "OS 11", or "OS ||", or italicize the "11" and make it "OS //" and go all retro like the good old days of the Apple //e...
mmmmmm, Minority Report
I have a feeling it would be even better in real life...
haha... just connected that..
This topic comes up after every release or demo of a new version of OS X. We are getting 10.5 in 2007. It will be interesting to see if Apple keeps giving us dot releases every 18 months or if they make a big jump to OS 11.
If the 18 months holds up we could be getting 10.9 in 2011. I could just see Apple jumping right then (for marketing) and releasing OS 11 in 2011.
While UI eye candy is nice, the major feature I'm waiting for is grid computing throughout the OS and throughout every app. As Sun Microsystems said, "The Network *is* the computer".
I'd love to be using all the CPU power in my house when encoding HD-DVD or H.264 or whatever the next big thing is. If my son is just surfing or chatting with his duo core iMac let me grab some of his CPU and use it to speed up my more intensive tasks.
