Read the blog post, then check out the prototype :)

https://sourceforge.net/p/fluide

We've got to set everything up now, but we are registered! We have a git repository, forms, a wiki, and lots more :) There are options to set up different tools and delete the current ones. For example, we could use SVN instead of Git, or set up a mailing list. So we aren't stuck with the options I chose!

We need to come up with a description on the project. Why don't we all write what we think the goals should be, and then compare them? Then we will know what we agree on.

I also added a subdomain, so we have an empty website at http://fluide.sourceforge.net.

I'm not sure how everything works yet, but I'll add you to the project if you let me know your SF username.

I hope to see the mockup soon :) Could you make a quick drawing while we wait, though?

Yes, I guess we do have a lot of organization methods on computers. Ideally, all that should be one seamless system, for windows, tabs, and desktops.

As I was thinking about this, it occurred to me that while we could spend lots of time on app launching, I really think that window management should be a priority, since it takes up most of our time working on the computer. So if we were to include one new idea in the DE, I think it should be a new window manager. We still should work on other things, but they are not nearly as central. Forgive me if I am stating the obvious, but then again I never really thought about it much before ;)

Coding a window manager is not as hard as it might seem, so it could be created very quickly if a developer knew X or Wayland well enough. Full integration would need a toolkit, but Linux is modular so that could be created later with an API to control the window manager.

I just thought I would mention this, since the author of "Why Tabs Must Die" suggested it to me. He said we might want to join the elementary project because they are working on a new DE. I'm not sure if FluiDE's goals are the same as elementary's, but maybe we should submit some of our ideas to them. I would be perfectly happy if some other DE used ideas we came up with. What do you think about doing that?

By the way, I'm still waiting for a reply from SourceForge. Emailing on Easter weekend probably wasn't a good idea on my part.

David, I've thought about it, and it definitely wouldn't be wise to rush the design like you pointed out. While we work on the 'real thing', I think we should devote some time for creating a proof of concept that doesn't have all the features, but can be used as a promotional tool. We can't achieve our long term goals without a larger team, so we'll have to set some short term ones, but we can still work on setting the long term goals too.

Happy Easter =)

I'm not sure if the rest of you read OMG! Ubuntu!, but this was an interesting article on window management.

I don't like the writer's mockup, but I think the main idea is right.

Thank's for the links :) I have looked at sourceforge and berlios before, and here are my observations. Berlios announced that downloads are now hosted on sourceforge, so there is little differece as far as that goes. Sourceforge seems more complete and is more widely known than berlios, so that would be a plus for publicity. Berlios, however, has lists of developers that you can search through http://devcounter.berlios.de/index.php.

My choice is sourceforge, because it seems like the maintainers keep the site up to date better than berlios. Let me know if you don't like this choice.

Since we will be registering the project soon, should the project be called "fluide" still, or should we use a different name? I liked "guipo", and I wonder if we should check the laws on that to see if that would be an OK name. Cairo seems to get away with it, and Windows 95 was initially called Chicago, so maybe we can do it too.
