Like others, I tend to find this a bad default.  Plugging in a flash
drive doesn't necessarily mean that you're going to browse it.  You
might be going to save a file from your word processor to it.

It's like auto-play on CD players.  The first track isn't usually the
one I want to listen to.  I mightn't even want to start playing the disc
yet, so I've got to put the disc in, wait, hit stop.  Whereas I could
have just put the disc in, and pressed play if I wanted the first track,
or did something else if I wanted something else.

Don't get me started about DVD players...  Grr, that's a whole new list
of agrevating stupidities.

I think your showing your age. I think it is real nice to insert your usb device be it anything and have a panel show up that displays all that is within. This is real cool 8-)

This is why I was quick to delete the new kernel(s) that ruined this nice feature :-)

Someday there will be a new kernel that doesn't ruin the very nice USB system on F7.
