I just thought that some of the Dev types might be interested in this article from MSDN Magazine.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Great. They are encouraging shitty organization by hiding that fact with a fancy UI.

I don't like the Libraries at all personally but sooner or later we are going to have to contend with these various changes to Windows. That's why I even post these Win 7 links, in an attempt to give you people a bit of a heads up. I think that you may get forced to dot NET sooner than you had hoped for though and that's a bugger. I've already discovered that a UI in C# is slower than my erections.

Here's how I've got my libraries set up (attached).

I've got it showing the default My Documents and also C:\LiveMesh\Docs-Work and C:\LiveMesh\Docs-Home.

My Documents -> I don't actively use it, enough programs when installed create their own bullshit structure in there that I've given up trying to keep it neat. Now it's a dumping ground for those programs.

Docs-Work -> Work related documents

Docs-Home -> Pr0n

I have the same setup on both my work laptop and home desktop. Then I've setup LiveMesh so that Docs-Home and Docs-Work synchronize. It's great, I edit a document in Docs-Work on my laptop and 10 seconds later it's replicated to Docs-Work on my desktop. If the "other" machine isn't on it syncs to the cloud until the machine comes online.

Edit: I also synchronize Favorites between machines, that's cool too. No more getting annoyed that the "must have" favorite is missing on the machines I use.

I notice Jon keeps his Picture library unexpanded. I wonder what he's hiding in there.

I move such directories to where I want them then create a junction to the new location at the old location. Then I set the junction to hidden + system and it vanishes from sight (I keep SuperHidden files hidden by default since I wrote a shell extension to show them on-demand).

I have to say, Jon's practical example makes sense where-as that article didn't really give a good impression of the feature.

I created a library for Visual Studio. I've got it loading both the projects folder from my Windows 7 partition and my Windows XP partition.
