bright green color together with grid is VERY nice. ... although some dialog boxes bear "default" brown rebol coloring ...

Although my problem is not serious, asking here because others could be interested too - what is /sound subfolder good for? Will we get basic sound abilities anytime soon? Maybe just two things: 1) I turned on debugging, so once I start View console window is started too and I can see debug info in it. So I invoked debug icon once again and selected 'no ... but once I start View once again, debugging to console is still there. Ah, now I found debug field in preference file - shout be turnable in thru 'user configuration dialog imo. 2) I asked already during Express testing and I still can't understand it. I want my View to start in maximised mode. So I maximised my window, closed View and started it once again. But I can see still the same - very annoying - X axis offset. How can I turn it off? (because the only thing I do once View starts is - I maximize my window once again). I also tried to change off-set field in my preference file from 0x19 to 0x0, but it does not seem to be reflected. But anyway - special option should be provided for Windows View, to allow maximised window appearance, not just calculated available desktop size out from screen-size ... Just my 2 cups of tea in the morning :-) -pekr-
