    very nice app… but too few programs… you should make it open source or something… or get ppl to make apps for Slider… very nice concept…

    1)more programs and it can contend with the metro screen.
    2)get it to replace the metro screen immediately upon start up
    3) perhaps make win 8 apps compatible with slider (if it’s legal that is)

    best of luck
    Mark.

    I don’t get it, Christian. Why do you need my name and address to permit download of a program you’re distributing for free?

      because it’s free for a moment only, it’s 2 Euros the rest of time.
      My “market” site need information even if it’s free, i can’t do without.

    Just F.Y.I.: One can check-out via a guest account, fill in the required fields with dummy information, and still complete the order process to download semi-anonymously. That way, you’ll only be required to submit your real email address to received the download link.

    Agreed to Mark. It needs plenty more things to be a real benefit. Posting this in deviantArt as open-source gives more diverse program opportunity. Don’t worry, you still are the rightful owner if you make this open-source, though you have to put up measures for safety.

    fantastic! It really is a shame that Microsoft didn’t go this route with Windows 8. This is much more useful, intuitive, and customizable than the Windows 8 Start Screen. Keep up the good work, I can’t wait to see how much you improve upon it. Maybe allowing Windows 8 Metro app support?
