OK, I also prefer the "classic look" of Windows. It's not wasting so much
space on the desktop for window borders and big start menu icons.
What are your ideas to improve the start menu?
I already implemented little gimmicks like the floating start menu windows
and the "program search dialog", which makes possible to search entries
in the "program" start menu folder.

Good, we are awaiting your design documents.  :)

Who are the "members" of the team - is there some official list?
I think any one can take part in discussions on the mailing list,
and adopt some parts of work.
