Graphics, User Interfaces This is the fifth article in a series on common usability and graphical user interface related terms [part I | part II | part III | part IV]. On the internet, and especially in forum discussions like we all have here on OSNews, it is almost certain that in any given discussion, someone will most likely bring up usability and GUI related terms - things like spatial memory, widgets, consistency, Fitts' Law, and more. The aim of this series is to explain these terms, learn something about their origins, and finally rate their importance in the field of usability and (graphical) user interface design. In part V, we focus on modes.

If you like the old midnight commander, you should really try Xplorer2 Lite. Completely free,and nearly all of the old commander shortcuts work! I replaced Explorer with Xplorer2 Lite and Astonshell for Windows shell and managed to lower my desktop resources from 76Mb down to just 5Mb while getting a more functional system out of the deal.
