Topic: Long time no see
Glad to see LiteStep is still alive and that there's a number of familiar names around here. Hey all
So what's been going on the latest years? Is core devleopment still active? And what about modules and themes, are people still developing stuff? I've been out of the loop for like five years so I have absolutely no idea what LS and its community is like today.
As for me, I've been using Explorer ever since I gave up LS. I think I reached a point where I realized that with a nice VS and a few extensions, Explorer is not a bad shell. It let me do everything I needed to do, and with increasingly powerful computers the performance gain of using LS wasn't really there anymore.
All this changed recently though. I moved to Windows 7 last year, and a while back I got myself a second 22" monitor. To my surprise and dismay I found that you can't really do much at all with the secondary desktop in W7. I've been very happy with W7 so far but this is really a major oversight on Microsoft's part.
So as you may have guessed, I'm thinking of returning to LS. But before I jump in, I have a few questions:
1. Is LiteStep fully Win 7 x64 compatible these days?
2. Are the xModules still in development and/or x64 compatible?
3. Is it possible to have two taskbars, each one showing only the tasks on the screen it's on? (I seem to remember this used to be possible, but it's been a long time and I didn't use dual monitors back then)
4. Is there a module that remembers window positions and moves windows to the screen it was last on when launched?
I'm sincerely hoping the answer to all of the above is "yes", otherwise I think I'll just have to live with the limitiations in W7 Explorer
