How about... FARR - it's what puts the stripes in two-point-zero.

mouser, yes I meant it only as a friendly poke towards Dash of course. Dramatic classical music is widespread in the whole genre of demo videos so it would be more of a general parody really.

I have no video making experience and will be vacationing in the coming weeks and so can't contribute much. But I hope someone makes this happen -- it could create positive buzz for FARR.

app103: FARR vs. that MS dog is a good idea! I can really picture it.

As for FARR vs the start menu: how about a custom created start menu with A LOT of messy folders and subfolders covering the whole screen basically. When navigating, let the folders have regular names in the beginning but more and more weird the deeper the narrator navigates...

example: program > games > some games > more games > simon sorcerer II > simon sorcerer I > Pong > Q how many more folders > A many more > and more > ahhhgr!!! enough already

And at that stage in the folder tree the narrator gives up on the start menu and pulls up FARR, types a few characters, find and launches the game. That last sequence is then repeated, now in slowmotion with a millisecond counter running and to the sound of racing cars. The text "world record" flashes at the end.

I'm going to be making real video demos showing how FARR is useful and what it can do.

So i suggest that this satire video be pure humour, and not try to show real abilities of FARR, but instead make fun of the whole hyped demo thing, and pretend FARR can do all sorts of crazy stuff it can't.  Like a mac commercial on crack.

FARR vs my twin taskbars of doom (mouser thinks they are scary)  ;D

A battle to the death! Which would win?

Amusingly enough, a community for stick-death animators is how I met Deozaan so many years back :P

Sadly, the de-lifing of stick figures is the extent of my "talents".

Are you suffering from Start Menu Dysfunction? Does it take you longer and longer to get your app up? Does repeated clicking and clicking only leave you lost and unsatisfied. Well your troubles are over!! Just put this little blue button in your system tray and your troubles will be FARR away! You'll be the envy of your #channel. Beautiful people who never acted like you existed will now provide you with plugins!! Programs you haven't used for years will throw themselves at you to be executed!!! BUT WAIT ! That's not all. If you act now, mouser will throw in not three, not four, not even five, but SIX, count them 1 2 3 4 5 6 plugins !!!!!
