Vista's new GUI is nice, but here are some additional enhancements I'd like to see. Vista has the ability to be molded by a program to recreate these behaviors. I just wish I knew how to program something to interact with Windows.
When you click and hold on a title bar of a window to move it, the window should zoom out a bit to make it look like it was lifted up off a flat service and is now higher than it was.
I want to grab a window that's on one side of the screen and fling my mouse and let go of the button and toss the window to the other side of the screen. This would be helpful to just getting little annoying windows out of the way. Maybe even have a little bounce or slide when they land or some light collision physics.
Minimize, Maximize, Restore, Close specials
More options to dissolve or have windows appear or change shape other than the slight current animation. Have them fade, burn, explode, flip, spin, shatter.
Tornado Flip 3D
If I have 5 IM windows open scattered on top of each other, it would be nice to use a button and the mouse wheel to spin them around a center axis bringing each one to the front thru the rotation. I dont always need to Flip thru ALL my open windows just one of the 10 IM's I have open to get to the person who responded with "k" and is making my shit blink.
Be able to shrink an open window down (think the middle between full size and minimized) on the desktop and be able to pile these up. And once in a pile I could spin thru them with the Tornado Flip 3D and zoom them back up or back down into their pile again.
If you decide to write a program to do one or all of these at least give me a free copy.
Also dont leave a comment with a YouTube link to a Beryl desktop. I've seen all that stuff already.
