AmiStart 0.65 released

Darius Brewka has released a new version (v.0.65) of AmiStart!

AmiStart is a Windows-like startmenu and quick-launch bar with drag&drop support and a very customizable GUI whch allows transparency, rounded edges, background-patterns and much more. AmiStart also provides so-called Shape-Layer, which are customizable and programmable Skins for controlling external applications via Arexx.

I think AmiStart and other start button/taskbar thingies are a waste of time. I used to have StartMenu2 in use but i found it clumsier than Toolsdaemon. As my games list grew, i finally discovered WangiPad . So now i use Toolsdaemon + WangiPad. It's faster...

Iíve never been a fan of start menus in workbench, or dockbars either. You can launch most of what you need from a popup menu using far less resources. No harm on a graphics card Amiga or P96 emulation setup I guess.

This Wangipad sounds very promising for games. If itís good, Iíll whack it in the next ClassicWB.

Well, i have a little over 1500 games in WangiPad-list and it still loads itself very fast . I'm thinking of moving the demos from ToolsDaemon to WangiPad too, it seems that screen space runs out TDaemon very soon...
