using DETACH to make the desktop more responsive


Greg Pringle:
When a command line program is running that does not need user input then DETACH makes the program run better. It does not interact with the desktop so the desktop runs like it has the computer to itself. This has been particularly useful for java based programs which can be run in the background.

Tried this with java apps that spawn a gui window. Jreepad functioned normal. Jripper was OK except that Alt-Q would not exit, only highlight the button. Use mouse for close button works. Will test more. Thanks, is great feature!
