Ok you have points in this email. All modern OS's are basicly the same. =
If I can use Win2000, I can use MacOSX and Linux and any other mouse and =
window based OS. It will take some time to adjust but basicly it will be =
the same. But these arguments do not count on Links OS only but on any =
GUI OS. This is not a problem of Links OS but innovation in general. And =
LinksOS will not be just a skinnable OS if it were I would agree with =
you to just use Linux and it's hundreds of free skins. However what you =
are saying between the lines is to find a new way to commincate with a =
computer and it's network, this is I believe not possible. Even the most =
user friendly computers (Sega, Playstation, XBox, Nintendo), game =
computers have graphical user interfaces. Some 3D some 2D but still a =
GUI. However I would like a vector based OS as I have read good comments =
about it when used in MacOSX. A 3D is another thing that would be =
interesting to me. However not like the old Win9x addons that would =
basicly show you an image of your house and a objects in it. But a =
desktop that is 3D, MS is already experimentating with this and uses a =
DirectX driven GUI. Have a look at this to see what I'm talking about:=20
What you are seeing in the links above is called Desktop X and is from =
StarDock the maker of WindowsBlinds. =
- direct communication with human neurals ->> To much Star Trek for you
- mimic and gesture detection of faces and bodies ->> The mouse is =
already doing this
However it would be nice to have an OS with an A.I. as seen in some good =
games. An A.I. like the computer in Star Trek, no personality but it =
works 100% and makes things allot easier for you. It will keep track of =
your favourite websites, games and applications and will make a try to =
estimate your personality and professesion.=20
Voice control would fit in right in the A.I.
Eye Detection would only be usefull in ultra high secure systems and at =
this moment should be only added as a feature request.
many computers in future will even not have a graphical=20
interface. sensor networks "intelligent dust"
I never heard about this how will it work? How will I tell the compter I =
want to draw a picture? Also I think I heard talk like this 10 years ago =
an nowadays GUI's have only become more prominent. Basicly what you are =
saying sounds to me like a terminal and or a network computer! And that =
is old any only reason was expensive hardware. =20
Why don't you join us? I'm still looking for a sceptic person thats says =
whats possible and what not. And who is into new technologies like you =
If you visit the project page in one or two weeks you can find more =
information on how the project (OS) will be like as I'm am writting =
technical white papers as we speak.
Also another member is writting a Developer Portal that will be =
comparable with the MSDN of MS.=20
U wanna nO wot I do? Then go here
