This poll concerns whether or not the GUI displays only those modules installed. And if there should be a screen during the install process giving the user the option to install or “not” to install any module they want or don’t want. Thus giving the user more control over what is or isn’t installed and displayed.
This could prove to be a royal pain for the developers since it would be major re-write of code for the GUI.
But in the long run it will mean more flexibility for the user.
What about the option to opt-out of the kiosk and sandbox?
If a user could do this then the modules the user doesn’t want could then be un-selected and not show in the GUI. Why should the user put up with modules not desired show up on the GUI? ???
I prefer a GUI that shows what “I” have installed and not be cluttered with stuff I neither use nor want.
In other words I like a “clean” GUI.
Kiosk is not running when you don’t run a file in the kiosk as such it does not load your system other than taking some disk space.
Any GUI will show things you don’t use. The Behaviour Blocker is very much the corner stone of current CIS.
Ir reminds me of discussions about Opera browser, the only software other than CIS that I use religiously, which is full of all sorts of useful functions. People complain functions take up so much space and resources only because of certain assumptions.
Opera and CIS are both efficiently coded; i.e. they are compact. To take the comparison to Opera further. I recently did some maintenance on an 11 y/o laptop of an uncle and aunt because of performance issues. It is an Acer Ferrari which was a significant laptop back in the days. Bare versions of both Chrome and Firefox were seriously straining it where Opera, with its bus load of functions, ran smoothest.
In the Opera settings screens you find references to all sorts of functions that no person may ever use at the same time.
!ot! Opera used to be a great browser and long term users are swung between hope and fear about if, how, how much of the old Opera will return in the new version. Management and most employees pretty much keep their mouths shut feeding even more uncertainty. I will stick to 12.15 for as long as possible… 8)
