Today I was thinking about the shear number of advances in computing capacity that I have witnessed in the fairly few years that I have been really using computers. I started on a Mac years back when a IIsi was good. It had a 40MB internal and 80MB external drive with 17Megs of Ram and a slick 28Mhz processor (if i remember, I think thats how fast the 030 went). I loved it because it looked so much different than other non Mac OS comps out there. What I am getting at here is that a friend of mine recently picked up a dual 2.0 G5 with 2 Gigs of mem and 250Gig HD, and as far as we have come the GUI is not that much different at its core. Granted that I KNOW it is great. I LOVE the OS X GUI, but really, we have so much power that the average user will never fully utilze. We use it sometimes when we play games, and its great to be able to import 85 pictures into iPhoto in a snap while i update my 15Gig iPod with 8Gigs of music on it. But honestly what am i to do with the rest of this power? What I want in the next 3 years is a dynamic desktop. I know that it will not appeal to everyone, and I know that much of the power waisted on it would go to better use doing film editing or rendering and such, but its just something that i have wanted for a while now, and now that we have the power to do it i dont see any reason as to why someone with some spair time wouldnt make one. i dont want pictures of the beach on my desktop anymore, i want the water to move and trees to sway in the wind and the sun to set and rise. people spend so much time organizing and adding things to their desktop to make it look all personal and stuff, i figure it should mirror a place that you feel comfortable in, whats more personal then where you would like to be or what you would like to see? its really just and idea. all i do on my computer is type papers, play one or two games, browse and listen to music. i dont think it would be that hard to make and i think its not something that would be just a novelty, i think there could be a market for this sort of thing. sorry for the rant but i am sure there are people out there that think likewise. i love the mac os, pretty much always have. i dont think this is something apple needs to do or anything, just something i would like to see. if anyone out there wants to make it, just mail me or something, i will gladly give some ideas on things i would like to see. peace, and happy computing.
