    Easy to implement, but heavy impact on productivity:
    Please display the notes from the VM Config/General tab in the VM list or allow to add separate notes to each entry.

    If you a lot of VMs with different development setups, it would be very handy to have some notes about which software is installed on which machine ...


    Thank you very much,
    Harald

    Harald,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Can you give some examples of such notes that you'd write have you this feature already in actual version of PD5? I'd like to see how long they should be.

    My personal needs are just some keywords, so that I have some additional informations which VM to select for different projects. So 80 - 120 chars would be enough.

    E.g.

    Windows XP: Delphi 6, Delphi 7, PHP 4
    Windows XP Clone 1: Test Client Project 1, PHP 5, MySQL 5
    Windows XP Clone 2: Test Client Project 2
    Windows Server 2003: Project 1, Project 2, IIS, MS SQL Server 2005
    Windows Server 2003 Clone 1: Project 3, LFO Server, MS Sharepoint, MySQL 4

    Currently the font used in the VM list is extremely large, so there is enough space left :)


    Thank you very much,
    Harald

    It would also make sense to see these notes in the VM's Quicklook preview.
