User Interface Transition from Windows XP to Windows 7

Windows 7 Build 7000 Start Menu

Here Windows 7 build 7000. Many users will be bypassing Vista entirely, so this Start Menu is a dramatic change, especially from Classic. This has some resemblance stylistically to XP's default Start Menu but it has enough changes to make things confusing for a lot of users. The Shut Down button is hard to see against the rest of the text, it should have a prominent red button to identify it. Notice also that the "Run" option is also missing, which will annoy many power users.
