Linux desktop lacks innovation

We must have a new metaphor in the entire desktop operations.

Everything is still locked in to the ubiquitious file-based user's
prespective-IT ALL MUST BE END!
Files must not be files, but objects, that has gravity and physics.
Screw THEIR menu bar, and show only one single search bar.
Files must not be in File Managers, but in each applications-just like
Tomboy does.
Devices and Drives on the Desktop? What the heck!-Don't show them and don't
show cut/copy/paste
operations but "Send to... > My beautiful X thumbdrive"
I'm sure there's so many ways to think this over. We're so SICK of Microsoft
bossing everything around!
