A Terrible Idea

After skimming the Vista Beta 2 tour at ARS Technica yesterday, we had an inspiration. If the OS is already a 13 gig install, absorbing 700 megs of memory at idle if accessible (possible exaggerations here, I hope), then why not go all the way?

We think there should be 3D animated icons for all office documents. Better still, the little buggers could act like Neopets and make full use of the audio system. “Why haven’t you finished me? I haven’t been opened for 3 months. That Excel file just hit me!”

I mean, if you’ve got that much processing power, why shouldn’t all your Word docs have AI built into their avatar icons?
