Re: Fwd: Mission Control

I agree on with Keating's comment that copying for copying sake is wrong, and we should do original things with Fedora. On the Other hand though, I think we should strive to have a better centralized configuration center that would allow users to easily and confidently configure their systems. I could get a mockup of what I personally think it should look like, but I would leave it open to everyone else to decide how it should work. (mainly I don't know how program very well due to lack of language knowledge) I could also compile a list of what user's want, and put it into the mockup and discription and submit it to you guys and get to work on Fedora's centralized frontend to the system-config-* tools.

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.
