Rich User Experience, UX and Desktopization of War edit / delete

"Experience design prevents from thinking and valuing computers as computers, and interfaces as interfaces. It makes us helpless." I agree with the point the author is making here, although it's hard to find a single quotation that summarises it; the Tumblr screenshot is pretty much a perfect encapsulation of what I dislike about the "UX" approach. (I also find the picture of the drone control workstations particularly upsetting, because the GNOME desktop in the top right is running a bit of software I've contributed to in the past. I don't like tools I've built being used to kill people.)

aerosuidae.net : goomwwm : index edit / delete

A keyboard-driven stacking WM. It works pretty well, but not quite well enough to make me give up a proper stacking WM; on the other hand, there are definitely some good interface ideas here that I've stolen for my FVWM configuration...
