Synopsis: Suggestion: Show the Display Window by default
As a programmer who has been using Delphi since 1995 and Visual Studio.Net for the last two years, at first sight EiffelBuild looks very primitive and unfamiliar. In fact, my first impression just from its visual appearance was almost bad enough to make me reject EiffelStudio for future development. But having played with EiffelBuild for a couple of hours I'm starting to like it. I am keeping the Display Window visible, so that I can see the effect of my changes immediately. Please make the Display Window visible by default. This will have two benefits: 1. It will save me the trouble of selecting View | Tools | Display Window. 2. It will make a newly-installed EiffelBuild look much more friendly to people who are comfortable with other modern IDEs. This might help earn you more customers!
