That is the worst crap I've seen for years. It's incredible that
people really believe that a computer interface is better if it
aims the rudimentary ways of managing real life (e.g. writing with a
pen instead of being able to type with 10 fingers vs. 1 pen...)

If Apple or MS will release such bumpy 3d desktop, it is the
same as doing as root /dev/sda < /dev/random...

(Actually if they can't keep their desktop tidy in real life,
they won't being able to keep it tidy in the 3d desktop, neither
would they in an old-fashioned filesystem keep things well
organized - hey, people would even get bored to tidy up their
virtual desktop, because it makes life as hard as in reality)...
oh dear...

really hasn't set the transient_for hint? (I hope so) ;)
