oooooook....agreed, very off color.
On a brighter note, after about 12 hours rearranging, recutting, reassembling, sleuthing (getting pissed off as hell), redesigning, more recutting and assembling, I have finally got the Vista main start menu together, this really took some doing, one of the tricky things about the vista menu is that whhen something is entered into the search box it pushes the all programs menu either up or down depending on its size, I narrowed it down to.. perfect.. immovable
Also had some problems with animations and had to make several adjustments there.
Finally.. I'm happy with it... and no.. you cant move the right side of search box. It is determined by the width of the left programs panel.
(Neil, that is a MUST upgrade)
Logoff buttons not added yet...and I wont be adding a user pic... nowhere to put it.
Thanks for everyones interest... all downhill now.
Not as big as yours.
