Haiku console edition
i don't know if this idea has already been suggested.
It would be great to have the possibility to have a version of haiku which could be used as a media player and basic application launcher like a video game console (XBox 360, PS3).
If you have a PC conected to a TV. You launch your PC and instead of having directly the desktop of Haiku on the screen, you could have 3 icons:
1) Desktop : To start a normal session of Haiku with desktop, icons, ...
2) Media: To play musics and video. A basic navigator could be used to choose the media to play.
3) Applications: To just launch an application in a list. These applications could be video games (or other)(like in xbox 360).
The idea is to be able to start a computer an launch a media or an application whithout the need for a mouse or a keyboard. Everything could be selected with a joystick. The haiku desktop would just be hide (but always available if you select icon 1).
