A search engine with much quantity and less quality, just to make it complete...

If you have actually used it and still don't like it then that's your right.
I'm glad to tell you that I will make use of this right then...

...And with a 10 year warning it's about damn time it went the way of 16bit software
Why? "Never change a running system". After all, there wasn't a need for that, unlike 16 bit software (as 32 bit CPUs came up).

UI improvements and all.
Why do you think this is an improvement?

Ya know the "Classic" start menu really only had about a five year run 95-2k ... The Start Panel introduced (to the public e.g. the rest of us had it earlier...) in 2001 when XP was RTM is looking at about a 10 year run at this point. So... Why is it still being treated as some new evil thing?!?
This is the first time that "the public" is forced to use it...

Or do you mean it just uses more resources in general? But I always heard that "unused ram is wasted ram", don't you agree?
Unused RAM is cache for me. More resource usage = less performance with the same resources, right?

what I read about microsoft having made studies on how it was an improvement in usability for the general public.
Do you really trust Microsoft's studies? Of course they will never result in "this sucks".

It takes as much space as Vista? It takes as much time to boot as Vista?
According to the recommendations, it takes at least twice as much of resources. :P

About the taskbar, you found studies showing that people are less productive when using win7?
I performed studies myself. The one I performed them with was I. You see, if you are keen with a certain way to handle your OS (having been using Windows since 1996), it is a huge loss of productivity if you'll have to change your behavior entirely.

No more actual "task" bar, no more classic start menu; two big disadvantages for me. Of course, computer newbies (starting with Vista or sth) won't have these problems.

No problem. Recently stumbled upon it.

I - personally - would never use anything which resides on Google's servers. Maybe when it is completely open source...

Windows 7 is, basically, Vista with a unusable task bar. So I can't see a sense in "upgrading".

i think 40hz's old startrek picture does point the way to the future -- customized input pads tailored to the application you are working on.
Yep:

Another PDF viewer, apart from the "big players" listed here, is apvlv.
Its "special feature" are keybindings like Vim has.

For example, < Ctrl-f > to forward page, < Ctrl-b > to previous page, 'k','j','h','l' to scrolling a page up, down, left or right, and so on.

Free, open source and multi-platform. GTK though, so not really optimized for a fast startup.

Mini-Reviews by Members / Re: Actual Window Manager mini review
« on: October 13, 2009, 06:19 AM »
Well, thank you very much for the mini review... AWM replaced  FileBX now. (Finally.)
About the "too many buttons" on small windows: The group button is enough for me, as all features are hotkeyed..

Developer's Corner / Re: Article Convinces Me To Move To vi(m)
« on: October 13, 2009, 04:18 AM »
Depends on how you use it.  ;D
If you use it with eclimd, not necessarily, as it seamlessly starts a "hidden" eclipse without all that GUI crap...
OK, my description was too blurred.

Developer's Corner / Re: Article Convinces Me To Move To vi(m)
« on: October 12, 2009, 03:15 PM »
Has anyone tried this one?

http://eclim.sourceforge.net/
Might be a bit late, but:
Yep. And I love it. Never ever have to start that sluggish eclipse crap again since its functionality is integrated into my beloved Vim now.  :-*

However TC's folder tree implementation is still a bit, ehm ... weird. Using the second (respectively first) panel as a folder tree doesn't fit my definition of a separate folder tree..

General Software Discussion / Re: What's your preferred File Manager
« on: October 02, 2009, 03:25 PM »
I would actually vote Directory Opus, but no lifetime license with this price is a no-go for me.

So currently I basically use two file managers:
1) CubicExplorer, still in first steps of development but already fast and stable with a bunch of useful extra features. And it is free.
2) xplorer², the fastest FM on the "market". Using your regedit skills, you can also assign My Computer to it, although the developer doesn't really support this ...

Alternative:  Nomad.NET is very feature-rich (and free), too, but the major con is that it is developed in C#, so it's sluggish and hogs resources. A pity, really...

2216
As I recently stumbled upon this thread:
The major reason for me not to use TC is the lack of a single-pane mode. I tend to do a bunch of file operations within the same directory. The second pane is a waste of space for me.

2217
Ah... I misunderstood your question. Sorry. :(

2218
Well, I gave up on Tray Wizard.
Ever tried RBTray?

2219
Uhm... I found a bug in Gonein60s regarding Notepad++:

I open the application ...

... send it to the tray ...

... and the application's toolbar disappears!

But why?
