Tuesday, August 26, 2008 by Philly0381 | Discussion: Fences
Whoops, didn't even figure that I would be the first post.
Had no problem downloading and getting Fences to open.
Menus look very nice and clean, informative with just enough info.
No problems with moving the Fences around or resizing them.
I was at a slight disadventage since I don't have a desktop with lots or even a few icons. Lets see there is the trash bin and then the Fences icon and, that's it.
I did notice that it doesn't play nice with a couple of programs, Stardock Virtual Desktop, woundn't show the different wallpapers by desktop (cleared up with uninstalling). Right Click doen't show the options for Fences. Not sure if there are others.
Unless I just couldn't see it, it saw no way to close or shut down Fences.
Understanding that this is a side project, what is the estimated time for the beta and when will updates be issued?
I can see how this would or could be usefull to what you might call power users, programmers/developers or possibly even skinners. Some my say you could use ObjectDock Plus for this also. I think though the agrument could me made that ObjectDock Plus would be for more permanent items while Fences would be utilized for the short term projects that people would be working on.
Now comes the question if I would use Fences, probably not, but that does not mean that it doesn't have the potential to become a popular desktop management tool.
Looking forward to reading others comments.
