Interesting CHI Workshop ... might be telling of the new CHI this coming year

HI folks, I usually don't forward these to our list, but i know many
people have spoken about in the community how CHI usually isn't a
place "for us" either as designers or practitioners. This workshop
might interest people who well want to see how far the SIGCHI
conference committee is thinking out-side their usual box for the 2006

This is as out there as I've seen so far.

Main menu convention on Windows

True or false?

In any Windows GUI application (non-web), the menu bar
at the top should provide access to *all* user
commands of that application, despite other
alternatives to user commands (short-cuts,
toolbuttons, pop-up menus).

I have seen many applications that don't follow this.
E.g. the Microsoft Paint does not have menus for the
tools on the tool palette on the right hand side.
What is the correct guideline for this? The MS
Windows UI Experience book doesn't say.

product SUITE design

I'm struggling a little with the design of a product suite.

The products perform very different functions, but they do

makeup a suite of tools that can be used in conjunction.

The struggle is:

1) What design elements (banners, navigation, interaction patterns,
etc.) should be the same?

2) What can be different?
