Remarkable! :naughty:
Something similar to this is a tactic used in the game of cricket, it's called Sledging.
This is used to diss opponents and break their concentration so that they make more mistakes.
And guess where sledging originated? :whistle:

I think DOpus have jumped the shark kangaroo* on this one.

Q: What's the difference between Australia and a bucket of milk?
A: Well, if you left a bucket of milk alone for 200 years, you'd expect it to develop a culture.

...and a better sense of humour.

[With apologies to all (other) Aussies.]

DOpus is a good product. But this betrays lack of imagination, not just bad taste. So, if you're a seeking asylum or refuge don't go to Australia, you'll find it very hard to get in and you may die in the attempt. But that doesn't stop one of their software companies from using your plight for marketing purposes. Tacky.

In attempting to create a slamdunk comparison of features which they see as having the edge over XY, they instead come up with a short list of aspects that are mostly irrelevant for most users or, at worst, minor inconveniences.

If your product is so all-round bonzer. You don't need to lure customers away from your competitors with bribes.

You nailed it.

And thanks for that idiom (Jumping_the_shark), a keeper in my private dictionary. :biggrin:

No real surprise anymore, but FYI now they stole my downward breadcrumbs:

PS: Also the "Details with Thumbs" view, and the highlighted Type Ahead Find.

Sure, but that was taken for DO10. Now they needed ideas for DO11.

Hey, here is another one: The file manager that so desperately wants to be like XYplorer also added Scripting to its new version.

:om:

Well, unless they emulate XYplorer completely from scratch they can keep on copying its features. They will never reach XYplorer's level of usability, efficiency and speed. And 2014, when XYplorer finally goes 64-bit, their last pathetic point will evaporate to nothing.

Actually Directory Opus had scripting for a long time so I don't know why they're advertising that. Copying so much left them brain dead perhaps?

Is this a part of the newest .NET-talk? I do not plan to switch my WinXP horse any time soon and I do not regard .NET applications as portable. So, I actually do not like the idea, but most probably that way belong to a minority, unfortunately.

The only appealing thing I would see in the .NET idea from a developer's point of view, would be Mono with a multi-platform vision.

I will say that retaining the downward breadcrumbs if they still apply to a new root is a pretty smart idea which I definitely see being useful when navigating similar siblings.

Wish we would have thought of that!
