SORRY but my Computer and TV/VCR are two different media.
YES I am on digital TV FULL Colour and 100+ Channels.
As for our computer requirements we have set procedures and configurations, which you may NOT comprenhend or understand.....
So unless you have the full facts DONT make assumptions.

I am surprised this argument is still going on...

My only complaint is the removal of the classic start menu... small potatoes when compared to the windows 7 experience overall.

I prefer the classic start menu, too.

I also wish Windows would have multiple workspaces, like Mac OS X or Linux.

There are 3rd party apps that will give you multiple desktops/workspaces, but it would have been preferable to have it natively included.

Personally I do not see the point of virtual desktops.

Do they allow me to usably run more applications - no, I can have just as many applications on the single desktop and switch between them just as easily.

Do they allow me to compare two windows of data better - No, whilst I would agree that multiple desktops are a useful thing when the increase screen real estate by being on actually different monitors, without this it is just another application switcher.

In Linux and Mac OS X, I tend to use one desktop for "personal" use - browser, instant messenger, media player - and another for "work" use - text editors, terminal/command prompt, etc.

You're right in that having multiple desktops is just a fancy way of switching apps, but it a) reduces clutter on the taskbar and b) makes window organization a little more "tangible."

Windows does technically have "multiple desktops" functionality but it's not exposed by default.

The (free) DESKTOPS utility from sysinternals generates up to four desktops which you can easily switch between using keystrokes or the systray applet. Just make sure you run it in an elevated context ("run as admin").

I can't believe how many people still like those classic menus. Of course I've never been one to stay with the default way MS does things. Since Win95 days I've alphabetized my start menu and removed anything that isn't a program. My 'Programs' menu is just 26 folders A - Z, that way everything is a click away - Programs -> P -> Photoshop
