Free Desktop Environment

GnoMenu - Documentatio n Manager

Base Specifications for the Free Desktop Environment

1. Any Desktop Environment needs a set of standards to determine the development path it will take. This specification is currently a rough draft of ideas and concepts. This is a beginning phase draft designed for interested parties to begin conception of a new Desktop Environment.

2. The following however, are base requirements for this DE:

Must follow and use all Open Desktop Specifications
Must use Compiz-Fusion for 3D, desktop effects and animations
Must use Emerald for theme Decorations
Must be OpenGL compliant
Must be user configurable to create the look, style and layout they desire
Must be user friendly but allow for advanced options for power users
Must not use any other Desktop Environment's tools and confguration applications
Development of tools to ease the creation of themes, including cursors and icons
Include integration with WINE using links to library files that handle the functions required to run the desired programs
Must fully Comply with Fitts' Law
Must be portable to work with any windowing system such as Xorg, Wayland, Xfree2k and others.

3. This DE needs to incorporate ideas and features found in Gnome, KDE, Xfce, LDE and all other DE environments used by *NIX systems. These features need to be properly evaluated for their usefulness and ability to enhance the Free Desktop Environment not just add features. If the feature does not add quality and desired ability then another solution or method needs to be utilized instead.

4. The DE must look at several sources for inspiration, ideas and concepts. Not only from DEs but from distribution specific implications of tools, layouts and designs as well.

 Cooperation between "Fluide" and FreeDE

As novomente suggested, it would be great if http://gnome-look.org/groups/?id=590 (named "fluide" at least for now) and this project could work together :) Since both projects are just starting out, they could be designed to fit in with each other, kind of like the partnership Yafaray used to have with Blender. The best way to do this would be to program the shell to be like a plug-in, so it would interchangeable.

Here is the single most important thing you can ever read:
If you agree, put this in your signature too ;)

God I need to pay attention I just sent you an invite to joint venture with us LOL. Anyway I agree that combing efforts is a good idea and if the rest of the group is for it then lets do it.

It isn't about it being free. Rather, its about the freedom it brings.

I am for it :)

I comment in FluiDE more then here, but I think that FluiDE project will bring a lot of ideas and technologies to our FreeDE. And I hope that the joint venture attract the attention of more developers and creative people.
