Awesome that you guys brought the Qubes Manager back. Besides being useful, it's even become a sort of trade-mark for Qubes, or even a mascot if you may. It's one of the major a visible ways to tell it's a Qubes system by look alone. Also I definitely agree that it's nice to be able to keep track of CPU/Ram more easily, or pending updates from the various different repositories, which can be a big mess when having many templates. So all in all, love that you guys brought it back. I'm fully aware the Qubes Manager isn't officially released yet until Qubes RC-4, so things might change with updates etc. but below are some minor concerns. * It resets windows size each time you close it down and open it again. It's nice we can change its size now, but it won't stick to the size we give it between closing it and opening it? It's in particular nice to remember windows size if you dedicate it to a specific screen, or a specific place on a screen, or if you want to key-bind it to appear and disappear when needed. * Another minor issue, which is much less of an issue, is dead links in the Qube menu, for Logs and Attach block devices. Since you specifically announced you won't duplicate tasks that the widget is already handling, perhaps it might be best to remove these two dead links, which are also handled by the Qubes widget? No biggie, just something minor I noticed. Other than that, it's really nice to have again, and above issues really are minor issues, really. Although it'd sweet if it remembered the window size, but it's only like the dot above the i, a minor detail before perfection. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
