I haven't seen IVMAN in action. But I do have to say this
MOUNTING IS THE MOST DIFFICULD THING FOR WDOZE USERS TO GRASP (imho).
The reason why I like Rox is that if you chuck the media directory on
the desktop users can easily work out !hey I click on floppy and it does
something. I click to exit and It asks me to Unmount...... hopefully the
user could work out the idea from there.....though they may need tuition.
If ivman Automounts when a media is inserted then I think that it should
only be included if it can be unmounted via a file browser over one
click or unmounted if eject is pressed. (don't know about USB's).
XFE is not that good a file browser it locked on me just then as I
mounted my first CD with it. Rox you can mount and Unmount a cd without
right clicking. I know it's anil and endeavour2 or xfe could be a backup
option. But Rox works and is very funky.
Im downloading xffm right now. But I hope it can handle mounting drives
well. If it can't I strongly suggest that it not be included.
