while at the same time I have become less and less enthralled with the new "Start Menu" clone that really is crap.

Yer, and they came up with that 'SLAB' menu, supposedly, after extensive user testing!

Initially I didn't care for the slab menu, now for some reason I like using it.

As for a "Start Menu Clone" a friend of mine who has XP on his laptop was watching me work and was surprised when he saw the slab menu. He mumbled, "all I have is a regular start menu.

To each his own. Not saying you all should like it too, just sayin' some of us do. ;)

Don't believe anything, especially coming from those who were from Ximian (now employed by Novell) - there are alot of fanboys who seem to be hyped up on too much caffeine. 'Extensive user testing' is code for 'we threw the idea around the office, people were ooo'ing and aaah'ing, so we merged it!'.

That is probably the one thing I can't stand - the excessive hype - nothing wrong with promoting and getting excited about an idea, but one has to be grounded in reality and realise when idea that seemed to be cool at the time is useless in every day use.

Your post wouldn't sound so trollish if sites like betterdesktop.org weren't available to disprove your point...
