Amazing that something I considered a major issue turns out to have been
important enough to someone else that they built that widget to deal with it.
One of the limits on imagination I see at Microsoft, sometimes, is a lack of
a sense for "while the user's doing something with this setting, perhaps
they'd be likely to also want to . . . " Thus, when I'm looking at the
indexing settings for files (advanced), not only might I wish to specify that
the contents of SQL files should be indexed, but also that the contents ought
to be previewable as text. One place that'd make sense for MS to have offered
a lot more control over filetype-oriented options would be under the "default
programs" section in the CP. As it turns out, it looks as if it's even less
configurable than the comparable locus for such configurations was under XP.
I'm really giving Vista a mixed score lately.
