Traditionalism

So, while I tend to embrace new technologies rather quickly and easily (I'm a big fan of Remember the Milk right now, and championing it at work).

On the other hand, there's a part of me that likes things the way they were. For example, when Windows XP came out with it's new rounded corners and other eye-candy, I disabled all of it, and I use the classic explorer view. Anyway, this is a good tip for IE7 for those of us who are used to our standard File/Edit/Etc menu bar . . .

Reminds me a bit of a conversation I was having with my brother about the new ribbon in Microsoft's Office. Supposedly, the radical change from the standard menus results in productivity increases for all. I find it dubious that for those of us who have learned how to do things, keyboard shortcuts, menus, etc that this can be an increase. I guess we'll see if I ever upgrade . . .
