Alternate menu interface
This is a mock-up I threw together of a possible new start menu for LG3D:
Some of the animated effects may be overdone, but this is Looking Glass! :-)
The main new idea is having a list on the left of the menus the user
has descended into. The user can return to any of the parent menus by
just clicking its name.
I felt vindicated when I discovered that Vista's start menu actually
uses a similar scheme. Mine is better, of course. ;-)
It doesn't really seem like a big enough project for SoC. Maybe I
could throw in a system clock/calendar based on Clock3D and some other
stuff, and call it all "Looking Glass desktop environment usability
Some cathedrals took a century to complete. Can you imagine the
grandeur and scope of a program that would take as long?
