A dynamic connection to a folder, which will be used to automagically build a grid of shortcut links, with some kind of interval for automatic refreshing.

One such folder could be, I don't know... "desktop"?

good idea, similarly, i'd like to see icons on the desktop that act as menus. like the start menu. i have the menus plugin which is almost what i want but not quite.
perhaps an option for file panels to turn them into a menu?

awesome idea stark. If the folder that was being monitored acted similar to 'object sets' then it would allow you to move the icons/links anywhere on the desktop.

So for example i have a folder labled 'internet apps' and in that i have firefox, filezilla, miranda etc shortcuts. Now all i have to do is load my internet apps object set and each of my themes have all the links i want on the desktop, plus if i add more links to the folder they will pop up on the desktop.

Sounds real cool. Great thinking starkraving.

agree with you starling, let the icons more cleverer!

but i think a bit different:
if you keep holding down the mouse's left button on an icon, a menu is appearing which contains some extra functions, for example: uninstall, docs, website, check for updates ect. and if you can edit this menu you can add more functions OR add defrag, backup ect. options for the drives!

btw how can i turning my desktop into dynamical? if you install an app in the end there is an "create desktop icon" option usually. but sharpe dont showing this new icon! please help me!!

This mimics in many ways the functionality of a dwarf bar (drawered wharf bar); you have an icon that itself "opens" a drawer containing other icons, which can either be manually set or dynamically generated.
