First I just love the new beta. My serial speakerphone modem is working well. The coherence mode makes a quite bit easier for me to switch between Mac and Windows applications faster. However I have a suggestion that will make coherence even better I believe. In my XP I have shortcuts on my desktop, that way I just code\type the first letter of the shortcut of the program that I want to run and then I do a return and that program runs. In the views-customized menu and when you're in coherence options, you should have another option Show Windows shortcuts on Mac OS X desktop That way if this option is checked, you could type the first letter of that shortcut program that you want to run and press return and that Windows program will run in the coherence mode. Simple as that.
