[[Apologies for my typo in Alan's address. I've corrected it in this
re-posting, so "reply all" will work.]]
When I saw the XO home view at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Image:Home.jpg
I thought, "Nice...the XO has pie menus! XO users won't be locked into a
linear list landscape." ;-)
I have yet to find any guidance in the OLPC wiki about using pie menus
anywhere in the project. Am I overlooking something? Has anyone
evaluated pie menus for Sugar?
Celeste -- Have you seen any usability lab or fish bowl observations on
pie menu usage?
Alan -- Have you already experimented with pie menus in eToys or Squeak?
Is anyone here using pie menus anywhere, for anything, today?
