Oh, and ctrl+shift+esc has been around since the Windows 2000 days.
Umm I have XP on this machine with a few services (connecting via a domain controller) and my average boot time is 18 seconds

I have been playing around with the bumptop beta. It's nifty but I don't think I'll really get any use out of it.

I don't really use desktop icons anymore. Usually I hit the start button and type the program I want to fire up.

And that is cleaner than it was! If only there wasn't a quick way access the desktop in every save dialog then it might not have anything on.

In fact I am going to try having nothing on my desktop for a while.

1 & 2 - Already done. Firefox (and DTA) saves to D:\Downloads but "Save as" dialogs still often dump to the desktop.
3 - Some others already do. Gimp is a notorious one that doesn't. It goes to "C:\Docs. and Sett.\jdarnley" not even My Documents
4 - Indeed:
code:
Directory of D:\Downloads
<snip>
5027 File(s) 37,701,539,944 bytes
34 Dir(s) 20,584,546,304 bytes free

if you want to access a folder in the save or open dialogue quicker, you can edit the locations on the left with xp powertoys to wahtever you want. far easier than clicking through folder structures every time.
