So you'd fall into the "multimedia user" group, then.kevinski wrote:The two-click system sounds nice, although I doubt that you'd need to have EVERY SINGLE OPTION available as a two-click deal. Obviously, there are a lot of options that the average user doesn't even touch in most applications.
To me, a modern operating system (or the operating system of the future) could vary depending on who is using it. Really, I feel that any operating system should be tailored to the people using it, so it'd make sense that you could put anything wherever you wanted to. For me, an ideal "modern" operating system would incorporate all sorts of built-in social networking functionality right out of the box. Example? Well, how about a simple video editor that allows anyone to click a button to have their final product uploaded to YouTube? (I realize that there are apps out there that do this already, but I was merely giving an example.)
Also, I'd prefer that a record of installed applications and their respective settings be stored remotely, allowing for them to be easily re-installed to my liking. Really, a modern operating system, to me, needs far more Web integration.
Personally, I think I'd fall into the "technical user" group. I'd want to be able to use Code::Blocks, VLC, Firefox and some other stuff like simple image editing and low-poly 3D modeling. I don't use social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook or Youtube - my browsing history consists mostly of Debian, gNewSense and ReactOS, ReactOS, ReactOS, along with various programming reference pages.
My own ideal operating system, therefore, needs to be able to do just about anything, but be quite bare, which is why ReactOS would be ideal for me. I'm currently using Windows 2000.
This is, I suppose, why the developers do not bundle stuff with ReactOS but instead use Download! - different strokes for different folks, but with a standardised, flexible base.
