Description:

The idea here is to hide the application in favour of the document itself. First of all, it is a manner to work using the concepts of real life such as paper, photo, video, ... and mail, writing, drawing, etc. The work place is really increased as all the interface buttons disappear.

The idea is not to loose the user in a mess of keyboard shortcuts or tricks that would more look like easter eggs, but to encourage the use of them. Mouse movements, buttons and place would play a central role, encouraging the use of mouse scroll, middle or both button use (for example to move documents).

Contextual menu could then be more furnished (e.g. in the gimp) as it would become the more intuitive manner of accessing functionalities of the underlying application.

Application tools could be raised in the foreground when hovering some places in the document or by activating some key/shortcut/button, but this would always be in an intelligent restricted way. I mean that it is not useful to raise all the application window, select a tool and hide it again, but more bringing to foreground the necessary tool only and masking it when done. The application interface would then be a lot more split, it's true, but this would act a lot more like 'document property' or 'document actions'.

This is an idea ;)

 What the math is it?

It seems like functional analysis. Now waiting for some algebra!

It is functional analysis, but in fact I'm using it for Non Linear Dynamical System studies.
Tricky but fun ;)
I used this document because (as probably many of you) I often work with this kind of documents to write my essays and even by maximizing the workspace (I use openbox with just a tiny pypanel), I need 4 to 6 desktops to place all the documents I want to have quicly over hand. And fortunately, Firefox has tabs because there are often more than 20 opened at the same time ! So I found that this illustrated the problem well.
And don't misunderstand, I know that you can maximize the workspace in Gnome, I left Gnome just because I didn't need more that a WM and a taskbar. But I'm still a Gnome fan !

 Basicly it's a good idea

Basicly it's a good idea, but it shouldn't be for gnome. I belive gnome would not want to become this "revolutionary".

The main reason I put this here is that it seems to me that even with good programming skills, it would be very painful to realise such an interface with the actual GTK.

Considering that GNOME and GTK are both running toward a 3.0 version, I think it is time to think about what could be the interface of tomorrow. Not for changing it right now, but to think of a way to allow it in the next future.

I understood that GTK+3.0 will (after its first release) focus a little more on theming improvements and I think this could be part of the thoughts. This is maybe time to forget the usual conception of a computer desktop and let the way for new visions to appear.

For example, are windows condemned to remain rectangular ? Nothing is ever rectangular in real life, can't we do something better, now that computers are faster ? Is the concept of window still relevant for computer use by now ? Is it really relevant for mobile devices ? Should desktop have borders ?.. But I'm going a little off-topic here I'm afraid !

 Documents focused

You've pointed to a worthcoming document oriented desktop called EtoileOS. This OS focuses ojn usability (when finished, of course) including desktop icons that are "real thumbnails" (just the document reduced) and no labels needed.

Maybe it's the future os MacOSX and Linux.
