Smaller guest list - like filesystem viewer

Postby sej7278 » 13. Feb 2009, 13:01

Can we have a text-only, or small icons version of the VM list, mine is already scrolling well off the screen with 17 guests.

Or how about an expan/collapse system (Qt4 Tree widget?) so you could have a folder for Windows, a folder for Linux, a folder for Solaris etc.

Also how about a way to change the sort order - at the moment its alphabetical, how about being able to sort by OS or last access date?

I think a good idea would be to make the guest list more like Nautilus or Windows Explorer, treating the guests as files/folders.

This sounds like a sensible idea. This is one to raise on the public Bugtracker as an enhancement request.. If you haven't already done so, you'll need to register for a wiki user account (this is different to a forum account sorry). Once you've logged on to the wiki you can raise the ticket.
