For me its not that the current thing doesnt offer functionality I need, I would just rather it was a submenu on the hosts startmenu..

I like the custom menu, and I also like the actual guest task bar in Fusion, which I do resize and relocate.
The separate task bars are easier to parse than the interleaved icons for VM and host programs.
As usual, I advocate user choice. I sometimes turn off the guest task bar in fusion, depending on what I'm doing...
Don't know - I have no use for Unity
I completely agree - to me, Unity is useless eye candy. I cannot stand not knowing how/where my applications are running... can't stand the similar feature/function of Citrix published applications.
Seems there is no interest in this. Thanks for the feedback!
I would like this!
Actually, I don't care about the start menu, but I'd like to see the guest system tray. I run a couple of applications which sit in the tray when not in use, and having to un-Unity, open them, then switch back is inconvenient.
Actually, what would be even better is if icons in the guest system tray appeared in my host's system tray.
I'm running a Windows 2000 guest in Unity mode and I'm missing two critical things from the guest's start menu:
The Settings - Network and Dialup menu
The system tray of the guest. For example, I'm running Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 in the guest. When I minimize communicator, it minimizes to the system tray and I can no longer access it without exiting from Unity model.
I like the option of having the complete taskbar and start menu appear as a uniy window that I can then dock to either side of my screen - similar to how Virtual Box does (or did, only evaluated it briefly a long time ago). You can stil use the colored border like any other unity window to allow the user to identify the window as one of a particular guest.
