... A strange idea to go around telling people about other programs that
you could use instead of MiniDisc, but hey!
In an attempt to build a program that you want to use, and does the
things that you want in the way that you want them to, I am constantly
keeping an eye out for programs, and watching the newsgroups for
comments on how programs are good / bad. All of this information is
then stashed away on my harddrive to ensure that MiniDisc development
occurs in the way in which you (the user) wants it to.
These are the primary applications which MiniDisc attempts to emulate /
replace. If you use one of these, then I want you to use MiniDisc. If
you don't want to use MiniDisc, then let me know what your favourite
program does that MiniDisc doesn't, and I'll see if it can!
Mouse Modifiers, Desktop Filters and Patches
This is a bit of a crossover category. MiniDisc does not claim to be
a desktop patch, although many of it's features employ 'patching' ideas
to work the way that I want them to. That said, there are often some
good ideas in these sort of programs that could well fit into MiniDisc.
This category is really only here for completeness. I have examined a
number of Pinboard enhancer programs whilst investigating a 'best approach'
for MiniDisc development. MiniDisc does not attempt to emulate
these programs (although you may find them useful).
If you know of any other programs that fit into the above categories, or
you have a feature that you would like to see in MiniDisc, then you can
email me with details of
