Just curious. I am running Windows XP on this particular machine right now. Is your start menu organized?

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with Global Menu. The menu is organised into different categories so that I can find everything easily. Then there's the Places and System tabs.

This is on my main laptop, that was running Vista, and downgraded to XP.
This is on my home desktop, running Vista, don't judge me -.-
My new laptop on Windows 7 :D

I like the classic start menu, it allows you to simply hover over items to see their contents and lays everything out in front of you (filling the screen if you have lots of programs (but it is organized)
this allows you to simply move your mouse over to the item instead of having to scroll through a list where you may only see 10 items at a time, then have to left click on the item then double click on the content you want to load.
And when you get more of a feel with the classic start menu, you can reduce the delay times (for me I can open almost any program in the start menu in much less than 1 second (have the delay at 50ms)

well, there's mine. it's a windows 7 x 64 SP1 machine.
every start menu shall fit its user, I believe. and mine is just half of what I actually Use to access my programs.
the other is accessed by Object Dock Plus 2.
and some Shortcuts are accessed by Scrybe. (yes, it's a laptop)
I seldom use the Start Menu, but I designed it that way, so that when a friend uses my computer, I wouldn't have to teach him how to use this machine. but for me., Start Menu can completely go away (well, except for the programs masterlist) PS: the antivirus softwares in it are ways to tell anyone using it how secure this PC is. :)

I do not understand the recent items it shows. I almost never have steam open. I rarely use Google earth. And notepad... Look at the second item I have pinned. And that goes for you too WordPad!
Also, I cleaned up my desktop right after taking this screenshot. :P

for me it doesn't matter how it looks like, cause i am using windows 7 and every app that i need, i just type name and it pops up.only program that i have "pinned" is chrome, for other programs i use "start search" or i just keep them in RocketDock.
