Description:

I think it would be cool, if the session manager allowed one to save the session as a file. Then users could open multiple programmes in the right position and state, just by clicking an icon.


It would also be a much more intuitive way of using session. Like: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zooming_User_Interface

This kind of idea has been floating around a bit lately. Your specific implementation is a great idea, although maybe a bit messy.

Gnome Topaz (Gnome 3) is supposed to be a task-oriented desktop (possibly...), where you would select what kind of work you'd be doing and it would arrange itself based on this.

If enough of this talk with this new idea keeps floating around, then this is likely what is going to happen.

ZUI is an interesting concept (the wikipedia article mentioned above), but I think that the way that we plan to be doing things: hit a key and all windows get thumbnailed on the desktop as smaller versions and then you select one to zoom onto, is a better idea and easier to navigate, rather than an infinite stretch of desktop space about which you'd have to pan to find things.

Do you mean like: http://news.softpedia.com/images/reviews/large/xgl_002-large.png ? Cause that is really a whole different thing.

Yes, that.

But I'm not saying that your idea is that, I'm saying that that is a better idea than the ZUI concept because it's more organized.
