    It would be interesting, but it will definetely take some creativity to make a usable 3d interface.

    Holo projector instead of a monitor?

    VR gloves instead of mouse and KB?

    Can you imagine the nasty Windows crashes? When your gloves lock up or the 3D display goes crazy making you motion sick.

    I read an article about a year ago about a group of engineers that were making a 3D monitor/display... I'll have to try and find that... it was really interesting... they projected an actual product in maybe 2003/2004...

    hm no i'm thynking [oh no not again] more along the lines of a 3d command line interface... having to think ctrl-c would be nice... and b800:0000 would have to be a lot larger wouldn't it? we'd have 640 MB of conventional memory...

    I can't see that happening for a long time. Keep in mind that a lot of people thought we'd have flying cars by now.

    I think a [fake, because it's really just two-dimensional images, which many people forget [must be like self hypnosis[you hypnotise yourself everyday when you watch tv[its a high level of concentration]]]]three-dimensional operating system would serve no purpose other than to hog resources. [Like all microsoft operating systems[2gigs for winxp[wtf?]]]
