In reply to Comment 7 (Don Cox):

Yep, i know this..

But when you replace loadwb in s-sequence with dopus you still miss some new features offered by new OS? or when using os4 you miss some features offered by dopus. So i mean with integrated that it'll be part of os4.. not two different programs.
user could configure if he'd like to:

-directory list with "dopus-style" or "classic"
-configure pulldown menu items or leave them as "classic"
-show devices in devicelist instead of showing them in workbench screen
-using floating "buttonbars" instead of menucommands or amidock
-workbench has it own filetype recognition, dopus has it's own which one to use..?
-and so on..

So, if i want to set "no titlebar" in workbench-prefs it of course doesn't affect dopus.

Many of the amiga users seem to "scare" directory opus because it's so configurable or maybe they are just too used to filemaster-style programs. Or maybe they don't know about better options :)
I personally would like to see best parts of dopus in os4.

But releasing at least os4 is good start ;)
