if it wanted to get bigger and richer by peddling re-dressed start bars, it would be releasing them yearly (or at least bi-annually) instead of employing thousands of the world's best programmers to only release one effort after six years.

For instance your financial documents would probably be named finances_06-07^2.xlsl and be in a folder 'Financial' in 'My Documents'. Why? Can't we have tagged files, with dynamic tagging.
Maybe the OS could change as per user task? Not profiles per se, but Work/Play modes.
(Maybe Microsoft should hire me dammit!)
