Unless I've mis-read the original post I think things have gotten a tad off course here with more attention paid to the title instead of the text it actually contained. I might as well jump on board though! I have no issue with the removal that was initially suggested, can't say I've EVER used it myself.
There were a few (user) proposed changes I agreed with, especially related to options in the internal context menus or the use of tabs in some spots - those made sense.
"Please don't kill the pizza slice in the taskbar!!" however is one I have to at least suggest a compromise for.
My first post EVER
here was about how much I abhorred it..Followed by a not so nice exchange with some old timers who likely still hate me.
So, how about using a resource file that could be edited/replace at the users whim with a default icon set installed that includes the current 'Pizza Slice'. This would allow those of us who would rather have 'other' icons (In my case, they would be the silly set I shared long ago based on your logo) to simply replace/edit a single resource file, without breaking any digital signatures, and still keep the 'default Pizza' [I love pizza, I just don't like it in my notification area] for everyone else?
