If you wanna see something visually pleasing why not watch a movie ? Look at some pretty pictures ..play a nice game... But I understand. Especially if someone comes over and you wanna impress them, you could say : - Come on. I wanna show you something. (press the start button to bring start menu) . Uuuu. Wow. What do you say ? A ? Niiiceee.... ..and then. .. Let's see that again .. Uuuuu.. Niceee.. .. Come on ..DOn't go. Let's see that again .. Uuuuu....niceeeee ... But how long till this gets old ? One month ? Six months ? . I know . There's a solution for that too. We could change themes every week. But seriously. Why play with a start menu and not watch a movie ? Or play a real game. For people working 10 hours a day with a PC , the PC is a tool. Like a hammer . It's a button to bring in front a true nice thing - like a movie or a photo. Or a true revolutionary 3d software. Why would you want to look at the OS UI for long ?
