Re: Stolen Focus

Oh, absolutely.

What Permedia2 card by the way? I too had a pimped 1200 of similar spec but can't for the life of me think who was making Amiga cards with that chipset. Or did you have a PCI Busboard?

Anyway. Focus stealing becomes even worse on Windows when some idiot writes an app that pops up a requester and the WORST POSSIBLE ACTION is the default choice. So you're tapping away in Outlook, and something pops up and says "Do you wish to format your hard drive and all connected network drives? [YES] [no]" just as you hit the spacebar which naturally chooses default settings.
