One of the great advantages of portable apps is that they can run in a permissions-limited environment such as a terminal server. The problem with the Suite menu is that in such an environment, the rich gradient-based framing graphics, background image, and fade effect are major bandwidth hogs (and can really slow down the menu's usability over a slower network display link).
John, could you (pretty please...) add a setting that will provide a menu trimmed of background, framing graphics, and visual effects? It could perhaps be shrunk down to a solid color titlebar with the dynamic arrow ball logo.
For now, I guess I have to stick with PStart, but I'd much rather use the more integrated Suite menu.
