Comment Why do users pin? (Score 5, Insightful) 857

Users pin apps to the taskbar because the UI for launching apps sucks. Long ago (Win2K) I would make my own folders at the root level in the start menu and group apps in a way that made sense. Win 7 broke my ability to do that without pinning. If Microsoft stopped breaking things that worked well for users they might have more time to 'innovate' actual improvements.

In any problem, if you find yourself doing an infinite amount of work, the answer may be obtained by inspection.
