Last night at the alpha meeting I raised the concept of being able to move windows outside the main window and the benefits this would bring, especially to people with multiple monitors, but to others too.
I noted that there had been a great amount of interest on this topic in SL. What I had not looked at at the time was Firestorm’s DUI (Dynamic User Interface) “April Fool” video, which turns out not to be an April Fool at all but a proof-of-concept.
The video provides a lot of the rationale for a “DUI”-based viewer and notes the extremely high level of interest in this functionality in SL.
I think this would be well worth considering. Here’s the accompanying Firestorm DUI article:
