You think the UI would be more "desktop" like ? or will it be stuck with the icons based OS?
You will be stuck with the icon like OS, even Mac OS X Lion is going that direction.
All the programmes on my desktops, windows and mac, have icons for the programmes and have had for years?
As the others have suggested, there will be a convergence of Mac and iOS UI's and although some desktop elements may make their way to iOS devices, just the opposite will be true for the most part. (Even MS is following the leader.) Here's a shot of my iMac's OS X 10.7 (Lion) desktop:
Icons will be the way of the future...although I'm sure with an app or two folks will be able to modify things to their liking.
Icons will be the way of the future, huh?
I guess Microsoft was WAY ahead of their time?
Because there is nothing like having to minimize every window to launch a new program on your desktop. No thanks to that. Desktops are simple enough as it is now, no further need to dumb them down.
I hope they include an option to kill all running apps at once. Sometimes it just takes a minute to close all (suspended) running apps.
Doesn't take me a minute but I do think this feature would be very helpful!

Nice thread. Hope apple are watching. I do hope they allow page 1 to be customisable with widgets (dare I say it...learn from android). Icon based pages are great but I would love to be able to see my calendar, the weather, liveprofile messages, iPF updates the moment I turn on my device and not have to open each program individually.

Yes, live widgets would be a huge hit for Apple users. I played around with the Xoom and I must say that turning on the screen and having my gmail list, the music player, and the weather map all displayed was nice.
I still went with iPad 2 though because I wanted better media playback. Honeycomb, as it stands now, can't compete with iOS in that regard.
