This project is not active. Mainly I use ROS as a place where I
can store all my weird ideas. I hope one day to get more time, so
I can begin coding.

Feel free to add them to the wiki.
I can give you a cvs account if you feel like coding/writing.

I like the mac user interface, its consistent and responsive.
Some programs has hidden menues and windows, which you can
enable if you are an advanced user. Sometimes its possible to find
interesting options in the programs resource files.
This makes it possible to both have all kinds of end users.
