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.

It looks sort of... different I guess what with no windows and all, but so far people have failed to demonstrate the actual usefulness in day-to-day tasks. Who'd want to wave hands for even simple tasks? You get home tired and it's probably the last thing on your mind... Anyhow, I'm still waiting for some modern OS to come and revolutionize the way we work with computers...
