thanks. nothing wrong with your opinion and its all completely valid. as long we keep a good conversation truthfully im wanting these negative and critism more to improve the concept.
in my humble opinion:
the phylosophical problem
Plasma X actually my last and final reevaluation. before there are mixed suggestion from various people (like my serenity wallpaper with centered task manager that spread more agitation than its worth (in some other place)).
in the end its just like the wise fable “the miller, his son and the donkey” story. for this one concept im decided to follow my heart and confront the problem it would entails.
the translucent theme and cognitive problem
i think this is just a matter of habits. its the same problem with our phone nowadays but the companies back then continue to shift from “opaque & full of clear indicator” trends into now “translucency & seemingly hid standard feature” trends.
if you give nowadays smartphone to classic phone user they woulndt know that there is actually a dropdown QS beneath in the top area, long pressing on invisible homescreen will bring widget menus, screen gesture, speak asistant etc…
the translucent theme and accessibility problem
its for sure, but since the beginning these are not intended to be a pursuer of “one size fits all” design but rather “one settings fix all” design.
rather than prioritize to make a default that can satisfy wide variety usecase as possible, im thinking to make it easier for the system to adapt to any user needs instead.
my possible solution
to keep a space of innovation while keeping user expectation and satistification im thinking something like to make it easier for people to switch into comfortable environment they want from the very beginning.
something like this welcome screen fresh install prompt concept:
again no offense here and im thankful you took your time to assess and giving feedback for my humble concept. im also open for further feedback.
