Personally, I prefer the Windows 7 layout, but of course it's all subjective.
Don't forget though that when you click the Start button the first thing you see at the bottom of the Start Menu is All Programs.
You can also use Right-click the Start Button>Properties>Start Menu tab>Customize, and then customize how links, icons and menus look and behave on the Start Menu. Attachment 185009
The first thing I did when I installed Windows 7 was get rid of the stupid Duplo block sized taskbar, pinned icons and grouped icons in favor of Quick Launch, small icons and "combine when taskbar is full". Moving from Vista to 7 really felt like going from playing with Lego Technic back to playing with Duplo blocks.
I'm also not a big fan of the "Libraries" feature - I much prefer knowing precicely where my files are. Because the Libraries feature gathers files from various locations, it all just seems a bit too "virtual" for me. Too "In the cloud, over there, somewhere" for me.
As for the start menu programs list, the Windows 7 style might be OK if you have 20 programs, but mine has 144 of them. I hate scrolling.
And please don't remind me about the search feature
