    I guess I'm in the minority in saying: please, add a ribbon. The UI in VS2008 is at least as complicated as your average Office application, and finding things is difficult unless you've taken the time to master the current UI.

    If everyone else in the world is all anti-ribbon, at least provide a way to completely disable toolbars; ugly, cryptic sets of 16x16 unlabeled icons just serve to get in my way.

    I agree with you, i want a ribbon.

  • Win7 UAC flaw

    Jon DeVaan has a very extensive post on Windows 7 UAC on the E7 blog.
    http://blogs.msdn.com/e7/archive/2009/02/05/update-on-uac.aspx

    There's a lot of information to digest. But in the end, Jon states

    "We are very happy with the positive feedback we have received about UAC from beta testers and individual users overall. This helps us validate our “regular people” focus in terms of the trade-offs we continue to consider in this design choice. We will continue to monitor the feedback and our telemetry data to continue to improve our design choices on UAC."

    which if I interpret correctly means as of the moment they have decided to leave UAC as it is in the Windows 7 beta.
    That e7 blog post totally and utterly missed the point. We don't want Windows 7's default setting increased to "Always Notify", all we want is to be notified when the UAC level is changed. Windows 7's default is perfect apart from the fact that any application can turn off UAC without the users knowledge.

    I just tried out Chirp tonight. While it has a nice UI, I can't for the life of me, figure out how to scroll for older tweets. As desktop clients go I'm still thinking Twirl is a better choice. Although for simplicity the web site is as good as any tool there is.
    Yeah thirteen23 sure do have great designers, both web and desktop.

    To scroll use the scroll wheel on your mouse

  • Who's on Twitter then?

    I've decided I like the idea of twitter and I'm going to start using it. Now to convince other people to start using it lol

    I also found a nice twitter client: Chirp

  • Who's on Twitter then?

    Mine is http://twitter.com/jmerriweather but i never use it, I only joined up to see what it was all about.

    Most of my friends that would be the most likely to use it think its lame. But these are the same friends that didn't like facebook when it came out and they are on facebook now. It would use it if more people i knew used it.

    Also, as I'm in Australia they won't send me SMS's anymore. They did for a while but seem to have cut it off.

    That's strange.  Is there an error surfaced associated with Chrome? What's the message?
    C
    The problem i had was when i typed a url into Chrome it wouldn't actually browse anywhere. I installed Chrome from the Clickonce installer, which as Sabot says puts it into the User Folder. I'll try and find a proper installer

    I'm with you on this one Eagle ... I ain't looking back! I'm just hoping it doesn't cost alot of money to upgrade.
    I just moved over to Windows 7. I like it so far, only problem i've had is Chrome not working.
