PA on Win7 comments on Scott Hanselman's blog



  • Scott Hansleman did a little run down of applications that use features of Win7 (http://www.hanselman.com/blog/LightItUpListOfApplicationsThatUseNewWindows7Features.aspx) and had this to say about PA:

    I tend to lean towards 7-zip for its minimalist UI, but PowerArchiver has JumpLists and Icon Overlays. Oddly, they call the Win7-looking interface the “Power Users Interface,” presumably as to avoid freaking out your grandpa who’s zipping stuff up with the Classic Interface. The whole package is close but not 100%. For example, they use an icon overlay during an extract rather than a progress bar. That’s just wrong, and it should be fixed ASAP.

    I have no idea what he’s talking about as far as the problem that “should be fixed ASAP” (I’m not running Win7 yet). But I figured you guys should be made aware in case you’re not already (I think that Hanselman is reasonably influential - at least among developers, FWIW).
