pimi is writing an essay about the history of the graphical user interface. she is "quite shocked" by apple's aqua but already concluded rightfully that unfortunately today's guis have to look like this.

besides the new look (bringing the hardware's translucent design into the operating system) and a few modern functionalities that have to prove themselves in practice, i cannot find a lot of the improvements i would like to see in a future os. i replied to her that i want to have a system that is a browser and a finder that is an html document. finder.html – a weird idea?

btw: sensomatic is up and running again. better luck this time! and flo has written another funny summary of the past time in london news.
