But hopefully users would still be able to save the old way.  Coming
from the business world and watching some of the support staff at the
college, they have many tens of folders they save to on a daily basis. 
One must be able to browse to a folder.  These people just couldn't
manage saving to the desktop and then having to move.  They'd rip your
guts out for suggesting such a thing:-).

Maybe nice for a home or small business user though.
