inspired on the basis of Sun Looking Glass and Linux Beryl...

Want to check the original concept then visit SUN and BERYL (Search Google)...
Sort of tired ATM so not providing the links...

Its nice, but I don't like the direction it is going in. I want simple, quick, OSes. I don't want all the productivity sponsored crap through in my face. I also don't use windows search or keep any tracks of recent documents, just cause i don't care for them. All that stuff in the concept would be useless for me.

I'm gad the Copenhagen concept is fake. It looks so ugly. At best, it's a really good WindowBlinds skin from the early 2000's.

They all do...

It seems like it's alot of "extra" stuff that I wouldn't use or want to have...
Every OS has a lot of features that many users will never use, but the features are there for the few who will use them...

What you can easily do without, some other user may feel is indispensible...

And I guess that is why some OS's seem bloated to power users who only want what is required and expected of an OS. (Fast and lean...)

M$ has many types of users to take into consideration when designing Windows, what may be too much to some, may not be enough for others...
