Don't know of many toasters that can do this so early in development:

3D Unity

(Note the date)

Also note the geekie understatement for a bold pan-display interface
push?... And we still have choice as demonstrated by the many *buntus.

Myself, for speed and minimal clicks, I still much prefer the concise
menu style that hierarchically expands as your mouse pointer rolls over.

(That ofcourse assumes a non-touchy display 'cause ya can't see what's
expanding under your fat finger... An example of the old case of using
sympathetic GUIs for appropriate devices...)

I have been surprised by all the lingering flak and sensationalism
surrounding the Unity GUI. However, is that not largely fuelled by a
sensationalist press desperate for controversy? And also the natural
consequence of a large group of people who consider themselves to be
strongly steeped in freedom?

Enjoying more years of continued uncompromised freedom AND staying
ahead of the game?


All merely my personal observations and opinion as always.
