Another thing – I’ve always wondered why software/OS makers don’t do more with the power of pretending. Look, for instance, at the average desktop. It’s using a pretending metaphor – but it’s not much of an imaginative leap is it? It’s a desktop on your desk. I can see how this would have been useful in the early days, getting people used to interfaces and everything, but surely there’s more opportunity to have some fun now – to make software more compelling by adding some pretending value to it.
