My question is this: Everyone is saying "The ZMI is bad, it's confusing,
users don't like it". Could anyone show me evidence of this? Personally I
love the ZMI in the current versions. I have also found there is a

Explorer and similar products. I just don't see the need to throw out the
ZMI - Are we in a baby/bathwater situation here?
