You can add toolbars to the taskbar to provide a popup menu for other shortcuts. See attached.

Another cool thing about the new taskbar is that once you have the icons of frequently used apps arranged the way you want them, they don't change position depending on which program is opened first. I love that. Also prefer the small icons once I got used to it which just took a few days. It has a nice neat clean look.

Old style here. I have 50 Quick Launch shortcuts. No way that would fit on the new one.

Confirmed, the new taskbar is great. Since I started beta testing the first thing that went away was the Dock. Don't need it with the new taskbar. And because I use a large monitor (28") I have placed the taskbar on the left side of the screen giving me the compete screen (1200) up and down which is great when viewing my browser, or working in Word, or Lightroom/Photoshop.

For me the start menu is for low priority so don't tell me to use things the way you do. I'm not you.

I agree with you "Ten"
I have even created individual folders (and changed the Icon view) of categories of Applications that I use massively. With them in the Quick Launch part of the bar for easy access.

The start menu on Win 7 (in my opinion sucks) is to confused from the base level. To make it the way you need it means re-build it.

I have 40 Quick links in the Quick Launch part of the bar and 18 Quick links (pin to start menu) in the start menu. and I use them all constantly for lots of work.

For the Start menu, its, "Click", "Click", "Scroll", "Click", "Click".
For the Quick Launch, its, "Click", "Click".
