Description:

I have tried to make my menu/kicker idea useable, subtle and expandable.

The idea came from those trading card games, you make your deck depending on how you work and each card in your deck is part of your overall strategy.

I have only really showed 2 'cards' here, the Information center and the taskbar, but you can have as many as you like with whatever application/function you want on them.

there are further explanations on the screen shots.

THIS IS JUST AN IDEA: the download is just the first screenshot.

There is a chance that this might become a reality. A source forge project has been started by hyrcan at http://sourceforge.net/projects/slicker

If you know any developers that could help please get them to go there and get involved.

I am working on an interactive flash version of the idea so you can play about with how it works. WARNING, it will be quite a rough impression of the hopefully finished thing works.




Changelog:

I have been listening...

1) I have removed the taskbar card and replaced it with transparent taskbar at the top of the screen

2) I have moved the kmenu button underneath the quick launch buttons on the main menu card (which is all in one by the way, just twice the height of the others), so now the kmenu is in the bottom left hand corner, just where it should be

3) I renamed the taskbar card 'Mail Center' but that really means nothing I just wanted a quick title for it.

 Still the best

Thanks for updating based on comments. Some additional items...
1. I think the "K" should be larger.
2. I think the "K" should remain at the bottom of its card even when expanded -- do you expand a deck? :-)

I can hardly wait for the first alpha. I'll be installing it.

 K card size

According to Fitts law (which I know is not always the best thing to reffer to) anything placed in the corner of the screen is easy to hit (the corners are four of the five easiest single pixels on the screen to hit from any one particular position on the screen (question 3)). This basically means that the size of the K card is unimportant, as long as it is placed in a corner. Of course, I see the problem if the K card is placed anywhere but one of the corners, which with the deck system of course is possible. But then again, it ought to be possible to decide on a per-card basis how much of the card is shown when it is hidden, as well as when the card is placed in a corner, the edge close to the corner should be square (i.e. flat against the edge of the screen) in stead of round (this could, of course, be theme-based so as to be defined by whichever theme the decks are using (a square area is, by default, faster to draw on the screen than a more advanced shape, such as a square with rounded corners, and thus faster). Just another couple of pence from me there :) Keep the productive suggestions comming people! :)

a flash "fake" desktop and I have taken the hint that people don't like the menu card. So based on a suggestion I have made the K icon span the whole height of the double sized menu card and put the quick launch at the bottom. the card kind of expands upwards but the K icon remains where it is.

I might have time to finish the flash idea tomorrow it'll make more sense then (hopefully)

emulate something like that already. Use Enlightenment with an appropriate theme (e.g. SpiffE) and apply a "pager" border style.

 How 'bout a name?

'Kards'?? Seems to kinda fit...everyone's been referring to these as 'cards' - gotta toss some KDE into the mix!

Most EXCELLENT idea, I might add - very original and pleasing to the eyes! This would *definately* throw some eyecandy (and usability!) competition towards OSX and WinXP. This would without a doubt be my desktop of choice!

KDE needs to get off this K* thing. It's annoying and makes me (and lots of others) cringe. Cards is fine, not "Kards".

Well, Deck is spelt with a K ;) On a more serious note on the name business, we might not settle on a name just yet, but I do think that we should find a name that is extremely simple, both to say and to spell(Kontour, kooka anyone?!), which is where many a project goes wrong. They are, in essense, limiting the number of potential users by NOT using an easy-to-remember, spellable name :)

 Naming...

Well, the K is sort of the K Desktop Environment gimmick. Why not Deck (or Dek if you wanna get cute) or Dek(s)-top heehee. Dex? There is already a project ( kids game I think) called Kards.

 Auto Attract Things

1st I must say: YOUR IDEA IS WONDERFUL!!!

Then:

How about this "cards" to auto attract things the way WindowMaker does? I know you can move icons and stuff in KDE but it isn't cool like WindowMaker. Also icons explosion would be *really* cool and maybe I'll try KDE again when this is implemented.

Very good idea, and they say that open source isn't innovative!

and very original. I like it! If you can fit the applets, it will be very good!
I like the color combination you made on the screenshot too :)
As usual when i can opine for new GUIs features, i request a best hotkeys implementation.
It will be good to asign a hotkey for the panels (as Win key for show the start menu, but more intensively, for any panel.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
