But I do believe that some new controls would be a very good thing. My personal favorite, for example, is the Outlook bar control. That control is, IMHO, vastly underused. There are certainly others that need implementing for R2. If you have a list, Helmar, preferably with some screenshots from other OS's, GE would be a good place to post.
