    Question Custom Interface?

    I've always wanted to create an interface for my computer that would be unique and better than what's currently out there.
    How can I do this?
    I want to make a futuristic menu system for my computer that's both easy to understand and isn't a huge leap from what I already know.
    Kind of like the Menu setup in Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It's simple yet easy to understand and universal with the way most games are used. You press start and you get your menus and sub-menus.
    I don't want to copy this exactly, but you get the idea.
    So I ask again. How do I do this?

    P.S.
    I'm having trouble with my hard drive over heating while using Ubuntu. How do I tell Linux to quit doing this?
    It get's REALLY freaking hot.

    Re: Custom Interface?

    Writing an interface from scratch wouldn't be a very easy project to just jump into, but there are a number of highly customizable interface components to grab from and configure out there. Certainly look into Avant Window Navigator (particularly the testing branch,) DockBarX, or Cairo Dock.

    For the hard drive issue, start a separate topic in "Hardware and Laptops."
