Etoile intends to be an innovative GNUstep based user environment.
Flexibility and modularity on both User Interface and code level should allow us to scale from PDA to computer environment.
- Light, focused applications, cooperating together to provide a rich user experience, using GNUstep services and our own Services model
- Fast, simple data sharing between tasks and documents without involving lot of context switches (between applications, windows, selection etc.)
- Facility provided by default to composite, layout unrelated elements in first-class objects like documents, folders etc.
- Workflow based on project inspired management (versioning, indexing, sharing etc.)
- Easy communication/collaboration among users, where users are first-class objects in the environment
- Assistant technology similar to the Newton's approach.
