OSNews, Generic OSes Developed by industrial designer Barton Smith, the Stream Adaptive Computer System is an interesting take on making computing easier and more adaptable to suit the user's current needs. Today, he also unveiled the operating system and user interface that would run on Stream. It's... Amazing.

Some of it is quite interesting, and it's good to see people exploring new ideas.

However, I think modularity is something that is primarily interesting to geeks. I doubt you can get people to understand, or appriciate this.

If there should be any modularity it should be software only. Physical modularity is prone to confusion.

This whole "natural" way of organizing thing trend that BumpTop is pushing seems backwards to me. Isn't the great advantage of computers that despite our tendencies to make a mess, our computer will have order in our documents?
