I want a start menu that is hierarchical in nature like in XP or Win 7. I only use 'legacy' applications on my computers so all the 'associated' applications/documents that come with the main application will be in the same directory. I also like to be able to curate my start menu.
Even though I have a start menu, I still have icons on the quick launch tool bar (after re-enabling it!) and on the desktop. Quick launch stuff is the stuff I use daily, the desktop stuff is used weekly and the start menu stuff is used somewhat infrequently.
oh i agree, i definitely don't want that crap that's rumored to be the change in the original post. honestly in it's current state i feel it's it's the perfect balance and there's no reason for it to be changed.
