There are a number of 3-D UI proposals: The Spherical Desktop is just an idea, and I think the sphere-to-plane mapping would be ugly, but on cubes it'd be great. Project Looking Glass works, but lacks any kind of collaboration--it's just you sitting alone at home.
What I want is to be able to work from within Second Life. If we had HTML on a prim working (promised for 1.7, NOT DELIVERED), I could fullscreen my SL window, and keep a bunch of cubes around my av with Firefox on them, and do all my work there. Remote X11 on a prim would be even better, because then I could use Eclipse through SL.
On hearing this, Tex Oddfellow tells me, "you're slipping way too far down the rabbit hole". Maybe so, but I've been waiting 15 years for the Metaverse to be usable. I was only ever living in the so-called "real" world this long because I didn't have a choice in the matter.
