I just discovered Freeter and I'm now a regular user of it. But I'm wondering, what's the origin of the name Freeter? Is there some meaning behind the name, or is it just some random letters than were pulled out of a hat? It's a weird name, and I'm curious how it came about.

So, what's the deal with the name "Freeter"?
RE: Toolkit and Links should match Projects instead of being global.
I also agree with this. It would be much better for each project to show applications and links that relate to only that particular project, not all projects.
Suggestion: Add application icons to the Tools menu
First off, let me say that I really like this program! It opens up a whole new way of working on my projects. I can see that I'm going to use it a lot (and I've purchased two Freeter Pro licenses - one for my desktop computer and one for my notebook).
Here's my suggestion for a future enhancement to the program: add application icons to the Tools menu. Currently, the Tools menu just lists the name of programs that you add to the menu (along with the name plus EXE extension, which is redundant).
I think adding the application icons to the Tools menu really enhances the visual appeal of the Freeter interface. For a comparison of Freeter with just the text versus the application icons plus the text, see the two screenshots below. The first screenshot is the current Freeter interface. The second screenshot is a Photoshop mockup I made that shows the application icons added to the Tools menu. I think it looks pretty slick, and it'd be cool to see this added in the next version of Freeter.
