I was going through the SWG forums when I came accross this.

Felinius asked:
will inventories, banks, houses, etc. etc. be slot based (such as in DAoC) or free form (as in UO)? I'd much prefer UO style, if anyone cares...

It's sort of both. The inventory window is gridded, but each item takes up one box. The "volume" is abstracted so you don't play Diablo-style "inventory Tetris." And you can move things to whatever boxes you want within the screen, I think.
We didn't go with UO-style inventory because near as we can tell, most people think it's a pain to have to dig through looking at big items, tiny items, items that are covered up by other items, etc.
