A system is composed of files and applications using them. Traditionally, we do not separate them but access them all through one window after another. Most mobile systems solve this by application-driven hence just depreciating the file manager, while most desktop systems still use "file manager", "find", "desktop shortcuts" or other ways to search down a file.
A simplified and unified way would do much help.
I agree that we still haven't nailed down the most efficient method of accessing large quantities of file, applications and instances (open files).
While I applaud your use of diagrams instead of cryptic multi-paragraph descriptions (like we normally find), your diagrams are difficult to follow because:
1) They are WAY too big (1/4 - 1/2 the size would be easier to follow)
2) They are not separated very well, it's *very* difficult to tell where one diagram ends and the next begins. Consider adding a non-diagram spacer (row of hyphens, etc) between each diagram to make it more clear.
Thx, @Darwin. Edited. Finding border no use and typed dash instead.
But I'm afraid the most difficult is not only to read those diagrams. Just find no right words describing this "splitting files from doing task" idea and how it depreciates the dock. Would appreciate that someone understand it and then make it more clear. "One gesture for all" is my fav part but maybe improper as the first introduce?
