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! ;)
