Usor stands for User Space On Rails, and is a project i’ve been working
on for the university of Cincinnati.
They are kind enough to let me use the source for a open source project
that will start when UC’s project is stable.

Interesting project. I like the “logos” on certain folders and the
tree-view on the left.

The file/folder selection model is a little surprising (I am used to
Windows
XP, btw). I expect that when clicking a folder in the right-hand pane it
will either open up and show me the contents, or in some way indicate
it is
selected. I can understand why don’t want to mix navigation and
selection,
but the folder should show it is “active” (e.g. in Windows, the
folder/file
gets a blue hightlight). Having to spot that it has been selected in the
upper-left takes work. Also, how will you handle multi-select?

Nice start!

The files should be getting selected with a slightly darker gray, the
exception is if you click on the background it selects the containing
folder. Also double click will allow you inside a folder or to download
a file.

I have no idea how to implement the multiple select in the javascript,
since mouse following events seem to be a pain. But you will be able to
perform any action you could do on the whole system.

Also i’ve nailed down the versions of the browser i work in
Firefox 1.5 or better for you beta testers
Safari 1.2 or better
IE 6
Opera 9

Thanks a lot for the input.
