Wow. Holy goddamn crap.
Watch the movies. Especially the cube. I’m sorry guys, but it will be a while before I can make a desktop manager that will do that on the mac. As I mentioned in my earlier posts about Virtue, I’m just starting out with mac programming - if people want to see a desktop manager similar to the one Nat and co demoed, I’m going to need guru help. Virtue has basically hit a wall in terms of visuals — we’re limited to what Apple decides to include in the CoreGraphics/Dock code, and even then, they could pull all the transitions at any point. We need a way forward.
Here’s a list of things I’m looking into, but would appreciate advice on from anyone in the know:
Don’t count this as being an announcement of an actual product yet - I want to make this happen, but I’m not even sure it’s possible. Chances are that I’ll spend the next 7 months writing something, and 10.5 will include everything we’re looking for (fingers crossed!).
Am I nuts? Wait… don’t answer that…
