I just want to point you to a proposal I have received by e-mail. Exca
(his synonym) read about Project Renaissance in the German c't
magazine and was really excited by the approach from Andreas
Schuderer. Please have a look at his proposal:
Re: Mouse gesture context menu [was: Link to an External Proposal]
Hi Frank, all,
thanks for this link!
Exca - thanks for reviving this great idea and creating such a detailed
proposal . It took quite a while until I recognized, that the
Tech-Demo is integrated in the main proposal page (I thought it was just
an image). On my Ubuntu with wireless mouse (a combination that doesn't
work all the times as expected) the sub-menus open only after releasing
the mouse button. As the proposal describes a different (IMHO better)
reaction, I think it's broken here.
I'd liked to try the gestures for the sub-menus...
Looking at Andreas' approach from last May  this idea was one of
several points he described in his mockup.
I tried to find any comments on this specific part of his mockup in the
archives, but didn't find any during the next 4 weeks.
Is this approach still an idea to keep in mind?
I strongly support it!
PS: Exca - it would be great, if you could find the time and interest to
join this group and subscribe to this mailing list...

RE: Mouse gesture context menu [was: Link to an External Proposal]
Hi, thanks for the feedback =)
Your system is not broken. As I wrote, the rightclick was not to 'abuse' for my proposal. I forgot to write, that the gestures dont work in the techdemo, because flash doesn't recognize, if you release the mouse if it's not above the button you started to drag. I'll change the text in some minutes, sorry for that.
If I find time and it is required, I'll try to build a working gesture-navigation. I used Flash, cause it's availble for most operatingsystems and pretty small.
Also I will join the mailing-list, just found out where to.
