Yes, I understand the point, and it is well taken.
I move my laptop around from place to place. I have automatic wireless connections set up, but some places I from time to time I can get a wired connection.
So, as you can see, on occasion, my laptop will automatically connect to a wireless network when I also have the opportunity to plug into a wired network.
Windows 7 (at least my experience) will display the wireless icon, and not the wired icon when I am connected to both.
