I've been observing my KDevelop usage today and now I understand better the
reasons why I use "Filesystem" view instead of "Projects" for my Ruby
In the order of importance:
1) I have a lot of .txt and other text files without extension that aren't
part of a project and not shown in the project view
2) I use breadcrumbs in Filesystem surprisingly often (I never thought I use
them this much until I started watching myself)
3) In Filesystem view I can quickly jump to directories by typing envvars in
the path input field. I have several important variables that expand to
various pathes in my system.
4) In Filesystem view I can either expand the dir or open it, in Projects view
I can not
5) It just looks better :) Mostly because items are a bit larger.
That should at least answer Andreas' question about why I use Filesystem view
instead of Projects.
