  • GitHub repo Wox

    Project mention: Any features like Quick Commands in other browsers? | reddit.com/r/vivaldibrowser | 2021-08-11

    Though you can get something like Wox, https://github.com/Wox-launcher/Wox - you can use that to do a lot. The default I believe to bring the Wox command line up in Windows is alt-space. You can do a lot that way.

  • GitHub repo MahApps.Metro

    A framework that allows developers to cobble together a better UI for their own WPF applications with minimal effort.

    Project mention: .NET 6 | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-08

    I've been using MahApps.Metro[1] and MaterialDesignXAML[2]. Those two libraries have made me feel like sticking with WPF until I retire in 5 to 10 years. I'm constantly getting feedback from clients that the applications (boring business applications) look so modern. It's been a nice selling point as my niche is rewriting VBA/VB6 engineering software.

This includes the team actively working on .Net 5, .Net6, .Net Maui, and WinUI3.

If you check on Github, there's a project to integrate Everything into the Windows taskbar, which I've come to really enjoy. But overall, yeah, Everything really covers all the bases so so much better than W10. I mean, it's not even close.
