gdshaw> cos a lot of the time I look inside the application for stuff (if you do that in Resources:$.Apps you see what I mean). Usually to hack the templates or maybe just a cursory look, but I do it often. Also you have the problem that maybe some link breaks and you have no idea where the app *really* is to narrow down the problem, or maybe just the !Run file has some silly RMEnsure in it or well, you ge the idea.
Perhaps I'm a hard core hacker control freak - I can certainly see the benefit for users who only "use" applications properly, but I just like to know what my computer is thinking, and I like to remove all (unnecessary) layers of complication.
MS windows analogys are handy cos everyone knows windows does everything badly Anyway I'll leave it there for now, hope this helps you understand my opinion!
