New Quadro Release - Nice Improvement

Although I had some problems upgrading to the new Quadro release, I am overall quite happy with it.

Wait: I like Quadro enough that I want everyone to use it.  Therefore, I am very Very VERY happy with the new Quadro release!  Everybody should use it! I really do think that it is one of the best things to happen to user interfaces since swipes and GUIs.

It is a small thing - literally - but being able to have labels underneath icons for the smallest 1x1 has allowed me to make most of my buttons 1x1 (had to make some of the labels smaller to fit).  Which allows me to cram almost twice as many easily reachable shortcut/button/pads on a given Quadro palette / screen.

I conjecture that my happiness is related to the square of the number of things I can easily reach.  Or, conversely, that my unhappiness is related to the square of the number of things I have to type in order to accomplish something.

Of course, I always want things to be better still. See: Ways to Improve Quadro Further, plus items such as this.
