Gadget OS

I have been using Palm Treo 680 (with Palm OS), which is a total opposition to document-centric approach, and to be fair, I was positively impressed. Not to say that document-centric approach is not good, and that all my writing here is a waste of time.

First of all, document-centric is good approach if you deal with a lot of documents. Then you need tools to manage them. And on your mobile phone you don't have too much items that must be treated like documents. Even on your home computer this could be a favorable approach.

Second, you don't need to group heterogeneous document under one cap at home in most cases. In business you always need folders.

Third, implementing document-centric approach, but not in full extent, could be a bit confusing, and implementation that ignores this approach in maximal extend could be quite logical.
