We are cloning Windows... right?
I argee about trying to make things better.
IMO the only thing I think could be infinitely improved is the top box -
the "connect using" box. What's the point in having an edit box there? A
text label would do fine, surely?
I had toyed with having the protocol descriptions as tooltips, or have a
"description" button to the right to pop up information about a protocol....
Can you come up with a design?
