hell, no OS supports every of your needs!


Right, that was kind of my point. Classic Shell is just a 3rd party util in a long list of 3rd party utils that a lot of power users install. And some of these same people are now acting all butt hurt that they have to install a 3rd party util, and some of them were even using it on Windows 7!

There was not widespread hatred for the changes in Windows 7 and the start menu did not puke your program files randomly into a god awful collage.

So no that isn't a valid point.
