What do you guys have in your start menu?
i do? thats classic shell because i dislike this as a startmenu, so counter intuitive
i take it you have everything pinned to the tskbar?
>not using yosemite
workspaces on OSX are fluid as fuck, you need never look at the fucking "launchpad" ever. it's the classic "bucket with almost all my shit in it so i can look at it all at the same time and poke at it a bit with folders." Stupid. There is another depreciated "feature" called dashboard (faggot applets) which is on it's way out. Won't be surprised if they both disappear soon.
"Spotlight search" pretty much ripped off everything that ever worked about launchers and between it and the sweet trackpad you can navigate through your entire OS at the speed of thought as if it was a map of your fucking neural network made digital. Glorious shit.
>not using small icons
I use huge icons in my start menu because I have my mouse sensitivity set to very high and I move extremely rapidly about the screen. I have no time to be accurate. From clicking on the start menu to opening an application should take no longer than 1/4 second.
(I don't actually use the start screen for shortcuts, I use Launchy like any non-idiot should)
If I already have my hand on the mouse when I'm using a browser it takes me 1 second to open an application from the start menu. It would take just as long to do it with the keyboard (which I can also do).
i like start is back. its has so mant cool stuff.
Windows: Just PuTTY and FileZilla, with taskbar containing Firefox, file explorer, control panel, Steam, fb2k and the default sticky notes app
Gentoo: KDE favorites menu only holds system settings while my panel has launchers for Firefox, Dolphin and Konsole (Steam gets a dedicated workspace, Guake is bound to the right-click menu button to summon ncmpcpp)
Keepin it clean.
Get a better visual style, bevels are shit.
Should probably move skype there since I keep accidentally clicking it.
Recently did a fresh OS install, so haven't got around to restoring most of my old pins.

What do you call "efficient"?
Why the fuck do you let the police see what programs you use?
Things I use the most on my Windows machine. I only user search function, so most used things get populated to there automatically, I even don't know why I have pinned few programs.
Apple always took stuff from gnome project also unity - 'new' titlebars and file manager for example and many more, but with unity they couldn't even steal their global menu as good as it is in unity so titlebar actually integrates with menubar and top panel and only when its needed which saves vertical space much better.
