Re: Fwd: Mission Control

Actually if you look at the betterdesktop movies where they plant innocent users behind a relatively default gnome setup, you will recognize a lot of the 'problems' those people had that slab tries to address.

I'd full heartedly recommend watching them, its a nice way to learn about the confusions a end user could have

ps what is the current menu other then a copy of the win95 menu? So why not 'upgrade' *pun intended* :-)

Functional to an extent.  However I'm not into "lets do it this way
because Windows (and now SuSE) do it this way too".
Rejecting concepts because they happen to resemble those find in another
OS is the best of reasons.

I don't reject the concept in whole.  The Control Center part of it looks like 
a slightly better way of representing gnome's control-center, plus a few 
other things.  How does this scale for KDE, or any other window manager?

What I don't like is the slab menu that is pretty much modeled to be the 
default XP start menu thing.  For THAT I haven't seen much useful reasoning 
as to why it should be used rather than the menu system that we use, of 
upstream Gnome.  This is what feels like copying for copying sake.
