Yes, I just can’t let this go. Sorry.
I installed the new Front Row today. The old one just doesn’t play well with Leopard (every once in a while it goes into ‘A problem has occurred’ mode and I have to manually kill its process) and from the very first moments I wanted the old version back.
Let’s say I’m willing to accept the whole music stopping (x2) thing. OK. The new one does have better stuff in it (descriptions for the items, scrolling titles and other small details like these*). But there are some small details* that I find annoying (yes, more details*).
Nitpicking of tiny details* that probably no one else notices or is bothered about starts here:
– if the screensaver activates while FR is on, when you press any key on the remote to deactivate it (the screensaver), the desktop is shown for a brief period, and then the FR interface appears – UGH
– when you sleep the computer from the remote (which I often do) while FR is on (which it often is), the little remote with Zs does not appear (somehow FR is on the topmost layer of the interface), and you can’t really tell if the computer acknowledged your request to catch some ZsYes.
Yes, I’m weird this way. One day I’ll learn to live with it and let this go. But this day is not the one.
*I guess you noticed that I’m all about the details baby.
