Hi everyone. I'd like to know what you think the next MS, Apple and Linux OS will look like...
This is my opinion, for Apple OS11 / OSX Sea Lion (I think it's a good name for the next Apple OS...)
- Same windows as Mountain Lion, with some minor changes :
- Red button : Close, yellow one : Minimize
- Green button : switch between 2 windows sizes (same as M-Lion)
- At the right, 3 grey buttons (a bit like the ones in Leopard) : Fullscreen, Roll, and hide toolbar
- New dock, with more features :
- Better app switcher : when hovering an icon of a multiple window app, it will show all the open windows in a sort of aero peek.
- Better animations : when minimizing a window, we will be able to choose between slide, scale, genie, and lots of other effects.
- Better skin : the Mountain Lion skin isn't really good. We will be able to choose a dock skin, between all the previous ones, and to create some...
- New Finderbar , more like the Ubuntu taskbar:
- Apple icon, with text (it's better) : start screen, like a mix of the W8 one and the Launchpad. There will be all the programs, all the options and some custom shortcuts (created by the user) on the right part, an app switcher like mission control on the left.
- Menubar (same as previous versions) : If the app is in fullscreen mode, the Finderbar isn't hidden, bit combines with the titlebar. You'll see the traffic lights and the 'exit fullscreen' buttons after the apple icon. Then there will be the windows' menus.
- A sort of system tray, like in Mountain Lion, but with more features : (I'm starting by the right of the bar) Notification center (old icon...), Spotlight, Clock, with date when clicking, Network, volume, ...
- New option : Mac Bar (a sort of taskbar)
- When mac bar is enabled, the dock is hidden but the finderbar is still here
- Mac Bar is a taskbar like windows 7 : The apps pinned in the dock are pinned in the bar, and when an app is onened with multiple windows, you can see both of them in the bar (Like when you show text in W7), and you can use aero peek (errr, mac peek
