no - it is an idiotic interface, but have got used to it. The worst
thing about it is that one cannot open multiple copies of the same
program. Sometimes when programming, I like to have one copy of my
editor open with one file on one monitor and another copy of the editor
open with another file on the other monitor. And I am used to having
icons for all my open programs neatly lined up along the bottom of my
screen, and clicking the one I want. Now I have to keep banging on the
top right of my screen with the mouse to do that ...
