    As far as the buttons go, I would have to agree with this post. The problem with the embedded application idea is that not all programs will look good whichever way MMC would set them up. Would be nice if the mini-mode allowed you to just drag it to wherever you wanted it. That way you can have it in the perfect spot for whatever program you use most. Would be great if the coordinates of where you placed the mini were saved so everytime you minied it, it would go back to where it was before. Or possibly set it up so you launch the apps within MMC and have the mini mode coordinates be saved for each application.
    As far as size goes you could possibly make it long and skinny. That way you could stick it up at that top of the screen where most programs have the title bar.

    Not sure what you mean by that? Embedded should show the program as it normally runs, minus the title bar and a little smaller than fullscreen.

    I agree with Ill1 (well - up to the bit about return to main window) about the button content, although it would be nice if it was configurable (others don't need volume - I will).

    Perhaps a config option to run it either horizontally or vertically, so that it could run down the side of the screen if you'd prefer (which would be nicer given most people are running widescreens).

    Yay! Mini-bar is good!

    Now that I reread my post, I meant to say back to fullscreen instead of return to main menu.

    I think it should be fully customizable. Which probabaly would have to do with skinning. To me that's something that goes in a Beta.

    We all want Alpha 5. So throw something like this on it and GIVE US ALPHA 5!! (please )

    Personally, I am for an Always On Top Bar. IMO, what MediaCar uses is the best implementation, but to have additional ability to control volume and the song currently playing.

    Yea... DaRacerz is right.

    @brady
    I never said that mediacar was perfect. although if perfected this method IS the slickest and most usefull. Mini mode windows always get in the way. if you have a bar on the top (or side or bottom...whatever) you have a consistant place that your fingers will learn making i easier to control with less effort (and intent looking)

    If MMC impliments this right there should be no problem with the way Applications are displayed (except copilot and with copilot their sizing is lame)

    This pretty much sums up my thoughts. As long as we can skin it so it will look exactly what we want and be able to define its exact size and locate, then this would be the way to go.

    But the burning question is...Is it going to be a mini mode type thig that is basically a window that is set to always be on top (showing the desktop) or will it actually try to embed the window into MMC like how mediacar handels this. They are two different approaches. I would like to see the latter implimented. I think that overall it will be the best for all.

    Thanks for all your hard work guys
