[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Complete removal of the Windows/Linux quickstarter, was: Re: [Libreoffice] Removing LibO on Windows ...

Hi all,

First of all, I am hereby renaming the thread and am adding UX-Advise,
even if that won't necessarily gain us more participants in this
discussion.

Second,...

It's the OS's domain to (quickly) start applications, and OS's are
pretty good at that. If you want to start anything particularly
quickly on...
Windows 7: you can add it to the task bar, attach it to the start
menu, add it to the desktop
Windows Vista or below: you can add it the Quick Launch bar, attach it
to the start menu, add it to the desktop
Gnome 2: add it to the panel or the desktop
Gnome 3: add it to the dock-like thing in the application overview
Unity: add it to the desktop or the floating panel
KDE: add it to the panel, the desktop, or attach it to the the K menu
(I believe)
Mac OS X: add it to the dock

I really believe, the quick-starter should just go.

Astron.

Do you remember the strom of protest, when OOo had removed the items to
start a module from the quickstarter? Are you sure, user will not miss
this feature?

Kind regards

        Hey ho ;-) clearly the more cruft we can remove the better, but at
least for older machines - and particularly those with hard disks, the
quick-starter should make quite a substantial difference.

        Then again, if we can get link-time-optimisation going, and more of our
code munged into one big shlib, and the faster startup that should give
for everything then - it prolly makes sense.

        Is this a 4.0 feature we can add to the 4.0 plan ?

        HTH,

                Michael.

Hi Michael,

Done that. Albeit, probably didn't get the technical background right.
So, let's close this discussion for now.
