That one looks like it combines the good ol' hierarchical Start menu of yore plus the search box of win7? Holy mackerel! I'm sold!

Configure start menu "all programs" to be pop out menu like Windows XP
Anyone know if there is a way to configure the Windows 7 start menu "all programs" to be a pop out menu like Windows XP? I prefer is that way because it can show all items at once without needing to scroll.
