nx: It's OK saying it needs "drastically updating", but unless you can get everyone on board, drastic updates aren't going to be adopted by developers. And that's not even allowing for the fact that a lot of software isn't updated any more.

At least in the short term, any changes need to be aimed at taking into account things that weren't around back in 1993 (eg. things added by the Nested Wimp), not making radical changes to the look and feel of the desktop.
