I agree that SkyOS needs some proper, sensible (G)UI design. Badly. I mentioned this multiple times in the SkyOS forums. The conclusion? They'll look at it when they'ye in RC stage. Let's hope they don't forget ;) .

Yeah, but Thom all you ever do is complain that window control buttons aren't in the OSX position, or that the title bar doesn't act like BeOS, then back up you opinions with either anecdotes or the claim that "apple spent millions on HCI".
you never actually bring up real issues like space wasting window frames, or the moving taskbar, or actual app interfaces.
