If you want to see a desktop environment which promotes user levels all over 
the desktop try to get "Geoworks", a nice OS which was available around 1992 
and has subsequently been sold as "New Deal Office" and "Breadbox" (about 
four 3.5" floppy discs IIRC -- those were the times ... ) :


It contains a complete desktop including all the tools you need and an office 
package. Really nice and years ahead of it's competitors back then. 

It contains user-levels in every application and desktop-wide. If you play 
around with them you'll soon realize why user-levels aren't as good as one 
might think at first.
