The Novell demo showed the Novell logo, which sort of suggests you lock the workstation by moving to the top. Don't take that as written though.gauchogolfer said:It's pretty cool, but I want to know....what happens when you go to the top of the cube ?
I agree. Afterall, we don't have water ripple effects on the dashboard or the ability to slow down the minimize action of a windowChaszmyr said:OSX has the underlying technologies to support those graphics, but Apple realizes that adding eyecandy often makes sortware less functional, intuitive, and simple.
Couldn't agree more. The animations are SO useless. And I would much rather have virtue desktops than the cube spinning desktop. Why on earth would I want to place a video (or any window) on the corner of a cube? And what's the point of wobbly windows?gauchogolfer said:IMHO, the graphics were way over the top. The cube effect might be cool, I guess, but as someone who likes to get work done on my mac, I wouldn't like all of the 'jelly-like' windows to shake around. I think that spaces will be perfect for me to organize my work (and play) areas, but in an unobtrusive way. I would end up turning off all of the effects I saw in the movie.
the ripple is to hide loading time, if it was not their users would get annoyed that you need to wait 2 secs to be able to use a widget, apple could do all the plasticy crap but they don't because it's useless and gets in the way of your work, OS X eye candy does nothing of the sort.spicyapple said:...and judging by the reception given to the ripple effect in Dashboard, highly understandable. ^^^
