I like the one on the left hand side. The icons and the overall  
design are sleeker and appear to be developed pretty well. However, I  
was wondering if the UI coordinator could add a themed look to the  
start menu. I would love to see a Windows XP-style menu because I  
like the frequently used program list and the pin to menu feature. I  
would also like to see transparency and theming in general (either by  
a theme file, or xml based theming). I know these are far off but it  
would be nice to see.
