Last night I had a discussion with a friend, about how Desktops should change to revolutionize, what we currently use. Since some time I personally do not see, that windowing systems come along, being it the big players or niche operating systems. You always have this fixed desktop system, you always have a hierarchical order, etc. you get the point…

Of course these have a reason for existence. As soon as you get used to them, they are what we call intuitive. Been employed at a company which tried to push its own operating system gave me the experience that intuitive is not always, what the word really means. It is more that today intuitive equals to what you are used to as I said already. People always wanted to have things, like they were also on other systems, just because it is “intuitive”.

As destiny is always playing with us, I browsed through a blog of a friends blog. And then I saw something a project called Perspective Pixel. It is a concept a little bit based on how the iPhone by Apple tries to refresh your daily work on a cell phone. But it goes much further. Well, take a look first:

This definately gave me a big wow and that is exactly what I am talking about. Of course, the developers know what they implemented and therefore it looks so smooth, what you can achive in a short time. But still I really believe that getting used to such a mechanism of work may really get you more productive on your daily work. Talking about Perspective Pixel, it is not only a concept, it is actually a company, which made this dream already come true. On this link you can see a live demo of this system working like a charm. The founder of this the company Jefferson Y. Han sells them already. Of course to prizes that we can currently not effort, but hey, you are most probably sitting at a computer which costed millions of dollars a century ago.

This really captured my attention and if you have some more information (for instance about parallel or competing system), please let me know…
