MIT's Cesium Operating System (drool...)

This hoax article, “A Real Alternative?,” appeared on Slashdot this afternoon. Despite it being a hoax, it does touch on several technologies that a real next-generation operating system ought to be built upon (such as XML, an OODB “file system” and separate modules for presenting the visual interface on a variety of devices).

…forget that whole 3D GUI business though. 3D interfaces will never work until displays can present a real third dimention, rather than just perspective on a two-dimentional screen.
