I'm curious to know what feedback from "ordinary users" made them
remove the option to show an icon which is not even shown by default.
What did Joe User say during XP testing?
"Hey, look, this XP thing is great, but you know the check box on the
Advanced tab of the Power Options dialog? It really bugs me that
people have that "always show icon" option, I fly into a rage every
time I see it. Please fix it so that in the next version of Windows,
nobody can do that any more, even if they want to".
You and I know that's not the reason they removed it. I suspect it's
something to do with "UI simplification", i.e. removing the options
that no more than 10% of users ever use, or something to that effect.
Since that 10% is going to consist of different people for each
option, it's an excellent way to annoy 70% of your customers.
