I am finding that WIMP is becoming a broken paradigm. If you have enough screens and enough rdp terminals open, and enough browser tabs it starts to work against you. Given that the ideas behind windowing systems is over thirty years old, is there anything better on the horizon?
I have heard that 3D interfaces are a gimmick, but don’t know if this is true. Have we already reached close to the optimum HCI, with the only improvements being in better taskbars and tabs? Or is there a step change or two in the works?
I am more interested in ways to manage different applications and information displayed to me, rather than input devices which does seem to have some innovation (touch, voice).
Links to anything interesting on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
