I hate it. It's just so NOT intuitive. XP's was truly genius compared to this. In XP, to Restart the computer, you just went to Shutdown and then you got to choose, it would take a fractions of a second. In Vista, have to click on this tiny menu key in the start bar and then choose from among six items. Bigger buttons before were better. The Account folder is on the start menu. Why? It's nice that they have all these organized folders, but most of them are for system use. And you can't even remove the folder from the start menu without going back to the start menu from before XP. The All programs has to fit into this small window that you have to scroll through if it gets too big. Sometimes the name is way too big on the file and it's cut off. Then to access the programs, you have to click on the folder. It's cumbersome and takes forever in comparison to XP. And then the folder stays open so you have to close it every time unless you want your programs list to grow wild. The start menu pisses me off so much it almost makes me want to go back to XP. I'm actually still thinking about reasons to stay with Vista. The more I play with Vista the more I feel that the updates to Windows could have been provided via a simple update to XP. Half the things in Vista are more convenient and half are a step backwards. Oh, :| ...and I hate the new folder icons.
