My 2 cents after using Start 11 for a couple weeks...
PLEASE give us some better options for differentiating running apps, active app, and others on the Taskbar. The tiny underbars are way too hard to see, especially on a laptop.
Suggestions: thicker & wider underbar, shaded background, outline box of varying thickness, and different high contrast colors in case we use a dark background.
This alone would make Start 11 more than worth the price.
Thanks for listening, Stardock. MS is not likely to listen or change their design, IMHO.
Help us Stardock... you're our only hope.
