 Am I not an user?

 I find menus with 30+ entries hard to use and understand.

 I agree that deep hierarchies are confusing (dunno about invasive), but
 that doesn't mean you have to lump everything at the first level.  If
 you take a look at our menus, "Games" is a top level category, with
 subcategories under that.  That is, from nothing to nethack it's Menu
 -> Games -> Adventure -> Nethack.  Watching the freaks that work here,
 I see Start -> Programs -> 50+ program folders -> program name, and
 they seem to like that...  OTOH, I usually get lost after "Start" :-P
