I just want to get this straight. You feel that the desktop is the web
browser. You do not feel that the web is an extension of the
desktop. For example I click on a URL object on the desktop and it
does not matter if that URL is a local file on my machine or a pointer
to a file in europe somehere I should be able to click on a URL object
and see the resource because the R means Resource so this could be
anything. I can then group these objects using whatever grouping
method I choose. This is not your view correct?

This I can agree with.
