I call it The Golu (The haiku Button ). This Golu can be moved to any dam place in the entire desktop like this:
Once you click on the Golu it animates into action with clock, internet, running applications, help, shut down etc. The one which is on top becomes big on the Golu ( you can select any running application through this Golu and it will pop out in front )
When you Click on any of the tab it pops that window like this:
Every thing is integrated in the Golu itself, like the sound control:
I REALLY DON’T KNOW HOW WILL IT GET INTEGRATED IN OS, BUT HEY IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING
Yeah, cool idea. Nice mockup
I think you meant to say “compete with other OSs”
Because this is definitely a new and different idea.
Great graphics, but maybe you should try the OS and get a feel for how it works before thinking about fixing it. In my opinion, the Deskbar isn’t broken:
It stays in the place where the user puts it, out of the way, in a corner or on top or bottom of the screen.
If an app window covers it, all you have to do is to move the mouse to the corner/top/bottom and it pops up on top of the window.
It gives good control of running apps and has a shelf for replicants ( like process controller and the mail server ) that give the user good system feed-back.
The Deskbar has nothing extra that gets in your way, and nothing is missing that the user is desperately looking for.
