Bring TabCandy-like functionality to desktops
I don't know if anyone here has used TabCandy (now called Panorama - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVdlSXiX1c4 ) by Firefox but I think the concept would be PERFECT for desktops, sort of a better way of doing Desktop Activities. Some of the great things about it:
1. You can group application windows just by dragging them (their thumbnails) together
2. You can name groups
3. When you go to an application of a group, only those apps would appear in your taskbar/on your desktop
- All others would be accessible via a "TabCandy" icon on the taskbar (which goes to a thumbnail view)
4. You can search through your groups/apps by typing into the search bar
I think openSUSE can take this a step further and do it like WebOS' "Just Type." They allow apps to register for an interface such that the search bar can send the search text to them and they can do specific activities without even being opened, or just respond that yes they match that search term.
Doing it as a combination of Tab Candy and WebOS' Just Type would make a very powerful, efficient and super easy to use OS/Desktop UI.

Two main aspects to Just Type:
Enable users to search within your app. If your data is stored on device, Just Type will present real-time suggestions as the user types. If your data is online, users will type a query and then tap to launch your app, where you'll present the results.
Define your own Quick Actions. Make it easier than ever for your users to update social status, set reminders, add items to a shopping list—or do whatever it takes to get things done in the context of your app.
Both of these can be adapted to work with applications in openSUSE. And the great thing? The apps don't need to come with those capabilities built in. As long as the app has an API that you can program to, you (or other opensource developers) could write the search/quick-action stuff yourself. In fact, openSUSE could host a repo for people to upload/download their own implementations to power this in almost any app!
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
