I personally cannot stand the “bread crumb” toolbar Microsoft makes us use as a default.  I really wish this was an option to enable or disable.  I see a lot of praise for this new feature with people saying “it makes navigation extremely fast” … Am I alone here?  Am I the only one who sees no benefit to this?  When i am navigating an OS I get there via a straight line .. I have no reason to go back somewhere else along the journey.  I am a proponent of shortcuts for frequently used paths.  When I want to view the traditional path of a certain location, it actually requires an additional mouse click!  How is this more efficient?  How does that speed things up?
