Re-Design of the User Interface

Our User-Interface-Design Taskforce has identified potential user interaction issues with the tabbed pane in the main menue. The Lightweight-User-Interface-Toolkit does not support a smooth combination of tabbed panes and lists. After a short evaluation we have decided to implement the main menu with icons arranged in a grid. The downside of this solution is that after the user has logged in, he has to do one more select-click before actually seeing his/her friends list. We're currently thinking of forwarding the user directly to the friends-/proximity list after login by default. Later he can "go back" to the main menu....

P.S. Duuuuude, that's why we need Media-Informatics guys in this team! :-)
