I don't know how, but I am someone who started in Windows, and I have moved
to Linux. I have a STRONG opinion about double-clicking, and that is:
Double clicking should be avoided as much as possible.
I know that double clicking is a "standard" way of doing many things, but
it is an unneeded artifact of the Macintosh single button mouse that
started the GUI environment.
In a tree, I would suggest that clicking on the entry selects it. If you
need to expand or collapse a branch, I would prefer accomplishing this by
clicking on a "+" or "-". Other functions can be allocated to the other
buttons. There is always the fairly standardized process where the right
mouse button calls up a menu.
In an environment designed with a 3 button mouse as the norm, I would
suggest exploring alternatives to double-clicking.
I think that we should explore other tree structures to come up with
But, as I said, I am biased...
Creation is more scientifically valid than evolution!
