I can think of one: universal access. I like the idea that ubuntustudio
is operational with very limited resources. After all, most people
living in this word have poor access to state of the art technology. But
in terms of operation and layout i'm open to anything, given i can use a
keyboard and a mouse. A virtual home is like one's home; only you can
make yourself comfortable in it.  :) Sometimes i wonder if XFCE wouldn't
work just fine on a tablet if the buttons were bigger and a virtual
desktop poped up when one taps into text-field or a terminal..? But i
admit having outdated knowledge about finger operated interfaces.

That is a very cool idea! :)
