The Scoop sidebar and automatic file management are both very interesting ideas. I’ve a feeling that these two ideas, if implemented well, would be very useful and solve many problems inherrent in the current plethora of dialog boxes that plague a desktop. However, I’d also suspect that they have the potential to be very annoying if they try to be too clever for their own good. Only time will tell which, if the project gains developers, will be the case. Either way, it’s nice to see more original ideas like these about the place.
