Oh and if you don't like the Start Menu in Windows ( any form ) try "Start Menu 7" it has a totally unique Start Menu where you get to see all of your programs at once and is totally customisable...Google it.

Start Menu 7, which I've used for years, opens one single menu with all my programs and folders listed in it. I choose to use it alphabetized, but I could also choose to do it in groups a la Windows 3.1 or any of a number of different ways, including using the Windows Button.
I'm big on choice, which is why I also use Thunderbird and Firefox, both of which allow me to customize the interface the way I like - there is little in the way of choices that are forced upon me, so I customize these programs (and all the other programs I use) in the way that works best for me.
And that's the lesson that Microsoft really needs to learn: let the users decide what works best for the individual, and give us the tools to customize the interface in that manner.
