You bring up some very valid points.. The problem with the "older"
screens
are just that... they are "older" so nobody(programmers) who wants to go 
back and update them with the new features(I am guilty).. I remember
very
well when the pull down,push buttons,radio knobs,etc,etc came out as an 
option.... To this day... I have never seen "ANYBODY" actually use
them...

 I tried a few of the features in one or two programs but since I didn't
have the time or desire, I forgot about them and continued on in that
same
old fashioned way..... The problem is US, not the users.... 
 
Does anybody use all the new features that are
announced...nawwwwwww.....
they look at them and say.. "that's nice" and let's move right along to
the
next problem...
