    Thanks for mentioning my library guys! And thanks to Christian for dropping them the link.

    You didn't quite pronounce my name right (Sven was ok, Groot was not). Tongue Out Nor "ookii" for that matter, which is Japanese and pronounced roughly as "oh-key" (it means "big", and my last name is Dutch for the same).

    Note that with the exception of the TaskDialog, all of the dialogs in Ookii.Dialogs are also supported on XP, but will give a better experience on Vista and later. And a neat thing about the ProgressDialog: because it's built on the Windows IProgressDialog API, you automatically get task bar button progress in Windows 7. Smiley

    Great show guys! Smiley I liked the echo when you spoke about the title of Rober Hess' new show Big Smile Nice idea.

    Btw. Brian I also heard about NTFS never becoming fragmented and that's why NT never shipped a defrag tool. I already confused me back then. I always wondered what a magic system that is. Was that said because there was no time to write a defrag tool? Does someone know why they said that?

    Dan, you something about the 7 defrag showing a preview of the disk with the fragmented files and the defragmented. I can't find that in 7 defrag... did I get this wrong?

    I honestly don't know, perhaps it was just marketing at the time instead of resources, but who knows.

    No, I think I misread this from the E7 blog post, here's the snippet

    "In Windows Vista, we had removed all of the UI that would provide detailed defragmentation status. We received feedback that you didn’t like this decision, so we listened, evaluated the various tradeoffs, and have built a new GUI for defrag!"

    I think the new GUI for defrag may just be the progress bar though, or perhaps there is a new GUI coming (I couldn't find a detailed defrag view either).

    I miss watching the old "screen full of squares" defragger from Win95. Come on Windows 7 team, bring the entertainment back to defragging!
