With the same reasoning we could consider to post a confirmation popup ("Are you sure?" [OK] [Cancel]) each time the user hits the [Return] key. He might be doing something dangerous.
And you do and this is perfectly ok.
It's an OS installation, allright. You have to be careful what you do - you might end up destroying important data that you meant to keep.
I am. But for my whole life action in computers meant pressing something. Now I have two areas which react on touch -- trackpoint and touchpad. Do not expect that your "standard" is "standard" for everyone -- left mouse button can mean right mouse button for somebody else.
People would (rightfully) scream bloody murder if we did such a thing. And I would be among the first to join the screaming. ;-)
:-) It is installation, not using the installed system. a) you can operate perfectly without tapping, you still have mouse buttons (which you press, not touch). b) I really doubt that tapping is standard (how you can tell?) At least I would opt in case touchpad/trackpoint is detected to ask user to enable/disable tapping. Or warn the user that tapping is on -- similar to detecting caps lock on when entering the password. Such warning is no harm of anyone just a precation for people who are suddenly are put in "hostile" environment (note that even it is my computer, installer does not use MY settings). -- Configure bugmail: https://bugzilla.novell.com/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are on the CC list for the bug, or are watching someone who is.
