Yes, and I anticipate many very annoying support issues with my clients 
as a result... Microsoft is apparently determined to eliminate the Menu 
Bar as an interface characteristic (I've heard that the latest version 
of Office also eliminates it)... one very annoying example of what 
disappears as a result is the "Find in page" feature (Cntl-F). The first 
thing I do when I upgrade someone to IE7 is turn on the Menu Bar... and 
I've noticed that almost every other computer I've touched with IE7 has 
it turned back on...
