Before read this review, please take in mind that English isn't my native language (if someone wants to fix it is welcome) and I'm not so good on writing software reviews (it's my first one).

This software is my right hand in my work day. I'm web programmer, then I have lots of stuff to use, almost at the same time.
DM2 is a lightweight soft that resides in the tray, it add stuff that Microsoft guys forget in the design and usability design.

It's what you look in your tray bar:
dm2_tray.png
(Left icon is the DM2 icon and right is the Virtual Desktops one)

Add functionality to windows like RollUp/RollDown (OS/X thing), always on top, opacity, process priority, and floating icons in the right click menu on task bar:
dm2_alt_menu.png

Also you can add custom combinations of clicks and keystrokes for all the functions including align, minimize to tray, arrange, etc:
dm2_hotkey.png

And you can create global keyboard shortcuts to any function you can realize with DM2, totally configurable.
In example, I have configured Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Z to change to my other virtual desktop (yes, the one with pr0n and that.. jk :P)
And when I shoot Ctrl + Shift + Z it shows me the favorites menu:
dm2_quick_hotkey.png

In this menu I can access to directories that I define or programs directly from anywhere. This is the most important feature for me, because I dont need to go to any part of the screen to select what I want to do. Just shoot that combination and it opens anywhere in the screen.


Another great thing is the File Dialog extender, DM2 displays a button near the New Folder button that shows you the favorites menu with the addon of recent visited locations:
shot0093.jpg

I've mentioned the Virtual Desktops feature, it's a plugin provided by the same guys. It's like virtual desktops in Linux, you can have many desktops as you want. Really useful to have a life a little sorted.

And finally I can talk about Floating Icons and Minimize to Tray functions.
Floating icons make any application in an icon floating in the screen, always on top. And for Minimize to tray, as it reads, it send any app to the tray.

I hope this helps someone.

Thanks superboyac, I'll give MP3 Collectorz another try giving it more time between searches (jk)..

Have you seen MPEG Audio Collection (link above) ? It's the one I'm using at the moment.

133
General Software Discussion / Re: Mp3 catalog/database programs
« on: October 18, 2006, 07:00 PM »
Exact, I don't like Collectorz bc it's so slow.. I have around 200 cds with mp3s and it's almost impossible to browse with collectorz, and search.. uff.. takes centuries.

And about MP3Rat seems to be no so much user-friendly to manage CDs and DVDs, because it doesn't sort by volumes but categories and tags.

I'm currently using MPEG Audio Collection, it's nice, fast and ok, but I'm looking for an alternative and that developers continues upgrading/supporting.
Just looking for alternatives..

And the other software here discussed is just for on-HD and I need to catalog thousands of cd/dvd with mp3s

Well, if you mean keeping track of all sorts of files in general, I don't think anything beats Whereisit.
http://www.whereisit-soft.com/

It's a great program, one of the first programs I ever bought.  Free upgrades for life. 

Thanks.. I'll check it..

And also.. for catalog CDs and DVDs with MP3s ?

That's what the blue banner in my signature is about.  Click that and you will see how we are doing on the DC Whatpulse team....how many keys we have typed, how many mouse clicks, and each user's individual page will also show how many miles they have moved their mouse.

Really nice, dude. Let me join.

Nice review.

I'm using WIN2VNC, that does the same job but it uses the VNC protocol. Nice.
