VirtualAcorn Indeed there is always something that could be done with every OS.

However if there are no customers prepared to pay say for rounded buttons to be implemented then there is no way to remain profitable employing engineers to do that work......

Pete Photofiler works fine on my Iyonix. The biggest limitation is that the maximum size of the thumbnails is the same as a large folder icon (you can make them wider but I didin't like it).

It works fine for me on a resolution of 1600x1200 although other people might not find it so useful.

I liked that you could use bigger thumbnails on Select but didn't like the way it did it in terms of appearance. Plus all filer windows looked the same took up too much desktop real estate.

PhotoFiler is less intrusive in that respect (and has a cool icon).

There was little to choose from in performance when I tried both on an SARPC, you do notice the substantial speed increase comparing PhotoFiler on the Iyonix vs RiscPC.

Also very pleased with CDROMFS on the Iyonix (IIRC better CDFS is another Select feature).
