I see your point, that would be bad, but heres two tweaks Id like for XP/2003:
*ability to change the theme and wallpaper used for classic logon
*ability to customize the items for the Places Bar
Also heres some tweaks I apply using other programs:
*Disable "Last Access" timestamps (NTFS)
*Disable 8+3 filenames (NTFS)
*Disable paging of kernel
*Changing (lowering) the timeout value for non-responsive applications and services
Are they useful? Yes, no, what do you think of them.
Lastly, when I use XdN Tweak to change the number of folder views, Tweak UI still shows a different number. Any idea?
- For the first one, do you mean the Ctrl-Alt-Del login screen? I may put something in there to select a wallpaper. I don't know how to do the theming for that yet.
- I'll look into the Places bar
- disabling Last Access is a possibility. I'm not familiar with compatibility issues with that.
- I'm not a fan of disabling 8.3 names. Many programs, even current stuff, still use those for some unknown reasons. I've personally had programs crash in the past with 8.3 names disabled.
- From everything I've read on it, disabling kernel paging isn't the best idea. That's one of those things were people will tell you that Microsoft's memory management knows best. It's seen as even a placebo or fake tweak.
- Lowering the timeout for programs is something I will look at as well.
Also, TweakUI for XP/2003 has a bug in its folder display. It reads/writes the WRONG registry key, so what you put there is ignored. it changes a key called "Bag MRU" or something, when it should be "BagMRU" (no space). XdN Tweak updates the BagMRU key for Shell and ShellNoRoam according to the MSKB article on the topic. their own TweakUI does NOT.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813711/
