Re: Star Trek LCARS Operating System, Not a theme

Feel free. I abandoned the project because when it come down to designing applications forms, I found the lcars GUI was too low density (and too bright) to be practical.

If you wanted to do a widescreen version as well, you have two ways of using that extra space:

(1) Like in ST:Insurrection, have a column of buttons on the left, perhaps for commonly used applications or recent files, like your desktop icons/quickstart menu.

(2) Extend the elbows full length to give your applications area more width. This doesn't look too bad actually, and would make having two applications side-by side work better.
