OSNews, Generic OSes Sometimes it seems that every new OS that comes out these days is ultimately and altogether quite similar. "It's all been done before," we sigh as new system after system is released with only eye-candy the apparent difference for most users. This new OS, named "g-speak" by its creators, will give one a run for his money. Using special gloves, a user of the system gestures his way about the OS on several wall-sized displays that interact with one another. The makers of g-speak call it "the first major step in [a] computer interface since 1984." Perhaps they are right. See the neat video here. You can even go so far as to dust off your Tom Cruise Minority Report action figure to better savor the future with.

Unless these g-speak creators have invented more than a UI, which I don't understand why they would've chosen such a low level from which to achieve their obviously visual goals, then they're probably using a real time kernel based on UNIX or the like, perhaps even an open source one.

Likely their first customers will be governments and movie studios.
