    Lightbulb A new Window Manager

    Hi everybody! I'm new to Ubuntu, but I have some experience with Puppy Linux. Anyway, I want to try to write a new Window Manager, and I picked Ubuntu as my development platform because it comes pre-packed with so many tools.

    The basic concept is kind of like the OS X dock in leopard: the desktop is a huge table that you can place icons and windows on, and it can be as big or small as you want.

    There will also be a method of grouping items called Palettes, but I'm not exactly sure how they work yet.

    Anyway, I'm creating this thread for any ideas or suggestions, just a general wish list. I'll make everything I can happen. This was going to be in programming, but I figured it's more about making things look good than anything else.

    Post whatever comes to mind, I'm open to just about anything!
