What I believe it to be is...Those of us who have to put a desktop
system in for other, less skilled users are not eager to put what is
basically a 'dead desktop' in front of those users because they often
save files to their desktop and move them from there. This is a very
real problem....I made it clear yesterday and Kevin responded to it
adequately. For those of us in that position, it seems advantageous to
hang with F7/F8 for a while longer.

The rest of the griping seems to be individual users who are unwilling
to deal with some feature regression for the short term for the benefit
of a feature rich future. Those opinions I pretty much dismiss summarily
since you guys already made that decision for them. Hanging with F7 or
F8 for a while for those people certainly is an option too.

Thanks Rex and Kevin for your efforts, your considerations and taking
the abuse which I would think is unwarranted but others don't share my
