I dunno. Every other UI for Linux at the moment seems to be cribbing Windows. It’s all a bit variety though, and I’ll give it a crack - just because I do like to piss around with a computer.
I do find it somewhat sad that the other UI paradigms of the past are now largely ignored. I mean, how about a beautiful polished UI which borrows from Amiga but isn’t AmigaOS? Ditto Archimedes, or GeOS, or NeXT, or CDE, or olvwm? Or something else? Or something excitingly original and other.
At this point I’d argue that it doesn’t necessarily even need to be a crowd pleaser (the crowd will go for what they know). It just needs to be well thought out and innovative.
And that’s a huge ask.
