[MD1] Informal GUI/Window Design Discussion
For those who might possibly be interested, an _informal, non-official, non-Apple-sanctioned_ discussion about the design of a new graphical user interface and windowing system for the next generation of Macintosh operating system is talking place on the GX dev mailing list and the AIMED-talk mailing list [see sig for subscription info]. Background: Apple Computer's attempts to create a transitional operating system have failed, at least partly due to a lack of a pre-emptive multitasking-enabled graphical user interface and windowing system in their transitional OS design. The design of Apple's original graphics library [QuickDraw] didn't allow for a simple transition to PMT, and the shipment date for their transitional OS slipped beyond commercial viability. To make matters worse, former management didn't have a fully-PMT GUI waiting in the wings, so now Apple is without a transitional OS *or* a full-featured OS. Fortunately, Apple has available the most powerful 2D graphs library...
