That's not really a great solution is it? I mean, let's say you go to buy a car that's had the pedals changed around... everything is great about the car, it's efficient it runs better takes less fuel, but those damn pedals. You'd just tell them to get an older car?
For folk, like myself, who have it set to never group, using the new right click does not work. Even though it's not grouped, it's still "grouped" by program. So say I want to close all my firefox windows, I need to right click one and click close (not to mention I need to move my mouse a further distance to get to close which is awkward) then the close menu will stay there, BUT, clicking close won't close the next window, so I need to go back down to the task bar, reclick on firefox (which sometimes only closes the previous one so I'm right clicking twice) then go back to close and keep doing that.
With the classic right click menu, which has been unchanged since 95 I believe, you could right click shift a few pixels to the upper right click then just keep going, or even multi-select taskbar buttons, which I can't seem to do now to close a group of items.
For me, because I like the efficancy of 7 but not the new 'task driven' right click menu... having a perminant classic right click would be fixing a problem for me, and not just a prefrence.
