    Default ZUI... neet... what is it for?


    Hey all,

    I am curious as to the design goals of the ZUI.

    For those not, 'in the know', this is the new feature where one can
    make the desktop zoom out and then zoom back in on a 'Widget' or an
    'Activity'. This is similar... but different from, virtual desktops.

    I am intrigued by this zooming capability, but can't quite figure out
    what the intended use is.

    Anyone know the intended use? Help me out here.

    I don't know if it is 'kosher' to reply to my own post, but here goes.

    It seems that, as virtual desktops change out the applications and
    windows open on the desktop, so it is with the zoomed widgets/activities
    and the plasma driven artifacts. So, the same applications/Windows will
    be open on a given virtual desktop, but the plasmids can be a different
    set. So, this would appear to be a run at changing out the supporting
    plasmids for a given activity. (Am I warm here?)

    I am finding that plasmids do not stay where I put them... this is more
    than annoying if one wishes them to be viable supporting characters to
    productivity on the desktop.
