    Looks nice! But it's probably just eye-candy for me. Explorer itself is fine for me, as I know where everything's at already on the system. I can imagine this'll be a hit with the ADD-afflicted techie porn crowd! :hehe:

    I really, really, really didn't get it....

    Doesn't it look very much like Windows Media Player? Or iTunes? Doesn't it do pretty much the same job? Isn't either of those bundled with the OS or available as free downloads?

    "Customize this software browser"..... "AOL 90-day free internet" CD anyone?

    I hate despise exclamation marks in product names. its always a strait turn-off for me.
    anyway, aside from the name that makes me yell "hulk smash", the demo vid does look good.

    I wouldn't mind using something like that. I don't have the luxury of fitting a television set and satellite receiver box on my desk.
