I know a (rudimentary) toolbar has been added, but I'm responding because the sentiment expressed here is one I see repeated again and again. The point being missed is that different people have different tastes, and different needs.
For example, regarding "wasted screenspace": It isn't a waste if it saves one time and aggravation. Also, I have a 25" monitor running 1920x1200 resolution. Screen space is something I have lots of. My point isn't "gee whiz isn't my monitor cool", it is that different people have different tastes and needs.
Regarding keyboard shortcuts: I grit my teeth just a little every time I see someone say this, when they are eschewing GUI elements at the same time. The reason is that I don't have the patience or memory necessary to learn specialialized keyboard shortcuts. This is especially true since so many developers tell you that you need to learn their
keyboard shortcuts. Am I going to do that for each of the many applications I use on a daily basis? Can't, won't, shouldn't have to.
