Yes, it can sometimes sound amazing :o)

Yes, that's true. I'm not saying that shortcuts are bad :)

That wasn't what I meant :-/

I'll maybe try, but I've got to learn lots of things before :)

Selon Mike Massonnet <mike.massonnet at gmail.com>:

Again, I'm not saying shortcuts are bad...

I'm not saying we have to copy the everything in M$. My opinion is that there
are some good things in others systems that could also be nice for us.
Windows (or maybe mac, I don't really care) had the window system first, and it
was a good thing. And now we also have it. I don't think Linux invented
shortcuts as well. (but I'm maybe wrong :))

Yes, but clicking 4 or 5 times the up button isn't as easy (I mean, if you
consider ergonomics) as directly clicking the directory you want.
Well, don't answer that the tree view is made for that, I already know it,

I think you clearly misunderstood my sentence. I wasn't saying that using Vista
is a chance.
By the way, your joke was, woah, soo funny...

> I will stop there since this post requires people with Vista skills.

Don't read between lines. I'never said that. It's just easier for me to compare
it to this Vista thing. I shouldn't have talked about M$. I feel like you're
totally focused on that :/

Well, thanks again for reading, and keep up the good work.
