Could we at least select the ring view by default? I see the free form
view as unnecessary crap because the last thing I want is to reorder
icons by using the touchpad. Did anybody actually try that exercise?
Also the list view has a bug, that it does not have an XO icon which can
be clicked to get a shutdown/cpanel menu item. My suggestion is that
probably the Neighborhood/Group view's XO icon should have the same menu.
And of course, the only thing that the free form can be used is to
reorder the icons like this:
