@ckeen @email@example.com I mean, it looks cool but uuugh, I hope it doesn't end up as its own OS and will integrate with the rest of the system
otherwise this just looks like ZSH with some GTK/Qt added
I think you are undervaluing the efficiency of text.
Compare the logographic below to its (possible) translation:
"If a man utters this spell while pure, it assures going forth by day after his death" (see https://www.quora.com/How-does-Egyptian-hieroglyphics-translation-work for further info and translations).
We have a spacial problem (pixel to meaning ratio), a problem of composability and a problem of interpretation.
IMHO, text centric UI (like #Plan9's one) are simply too ahead of times.
@ckeen @firstname.lastname@example.org idk, I like a lot of the ideas in theory but if it's not as portable and modular as what we currently have, I don't see myself using it anytime soon
i'm not against making UIs better but I'm not sure how I feel about these ideas
how does it compare to what came before? how does it compare to Emacs?
