The way I see it the new start menu and the whole UI of explorer it's like is having a less advanced technology. Because it offers fewer customizing power then the older UI. The old windows explorer feels like amazing technology from the future in comparison. Yes the old graphics looks more cheap but since when the color and the look of something defined the power ? With the old UI you could drag around the buttons and choose for yourself how many buttons you could have - like UP, COpy, Paste - even Undo and many more. Trivial things yes , which every modern software offers but somehow the new Win 7 and Vista are not powerful enough to give you that. Well it's amazing that some users here are making and building programs designed to replace the start menu and giving new options. But I'm afraid there are many more things unacceptable on WIn 7. Small things yes (like the auto-refresh feature) but still they add up and seriously disable some work-flows types. Is it possible to program and customize all the annoying "features" of Win 7 ? If that would be possible than me and many other users could see the WIn Vista or 7 as a possible viable OS.
