A few other FMs I've tried have a solution to the 'no-confirmation delete' issue that, while not being what I [and other power users] want, I could live with it in MiX. What they've done is let you delete without an über-annoying 'are you sure?!' prompt--but you must be using its recycle bin for this to work, and have its prompting turned off.
I can work around that if it's implemented in MiX; I'll simply automate a daily sweep of its recycle bin directories. So I'd get my silent deletions and, once my sweep occurs, the files would be permanently gone, without having to manually mess with a recycle bin.
This whole thing has struck me as incredible...really unbelievable. It's a feature, an option, not the end of the world.
The first thing I learned 35 years ago on UNIX was that delete means delete. So if you're about to issue an 'rm -rf' command on a directory, be well and truly sure you're in the right place and you really want those files gone--because there's no going back. I'd never heard of, or wanted, a silly 'recycle bin' until having to administer a few windows boxes at work. It struck me as an insult to the user's intelligence. Clearly, not everyone shares that feeling.
If this is such a big deal, maybe Hootan can put out two versions: one for extreme power users who neither want nor need any handholding, and one for everyone else. At first running [only] of the power-user version, display a disclaimer, like the attached screenshot, which the user must acknowledge. Problem solved.
Guys, while discussions are good and are welcome, I see that they start to deteriorate after some time unless atleast one of the parties moves on. There is really no point in each one simply repeating his position in different words in answer to another's post endlessly.
Please move on.
@HootanParsa would you consider adding pinch-to-zoom to text editor as HTML Viewer?
