OSNews, Generic OSes Taking a break from reporting on the latest netbook or phone rumours, Engadget posted an article yesterday about several elements in desktop operating systems writer Paul Miller finds outdated. While there's some interesting stuff in there, there's also a lot to discuss.

For minimized applications, Enlightenment is still my benchmark. The app reduced to an icon but into an easily configurable segment of the screen. Where available, program icons would be a reduced screenshot rather than icon image.

Warf from top right corner down to middle screen. Four desktop panes (pager) in bottom right corner. Icon area between the two. Warf and icon space in single column the width of the pager. All space on the left for open applications.

My KDE with Conky setup comes closest but it means the ever present taskbar along one edge. I'm happy with the setup including frequently used apps icons and such but it's still not like E16 was.
