PowerGUI Survey: Safe Mode Shortcut

As we are getting closer to the first 1.5 beta we are reviewing various pieces of PowerGUI functionality, including the shortcuts we are placing into the Windows Start Menu.

First of all, we will be adding x86 shortcuts on 64-bit operating systems so administrators can use us in both modes (this will help working with 32-bit only stuff like VMware Toolkit and various legacy systems.)

Secondly, we are considering removing the existing PowerGUI (safe mode) shortcut.

All this shortcut does is actually starting PowerGUI admin console without loading the PowerShell profiles present on the computer. We used to need this long time ago when we had compatibility issues with PowerShell community extensions. For a long time I have not heard anyone actually telling me that they were using this option, so if no one needs it, why keep it?

Please spend 5 seconds by going to the survey page and answering this simple question: do we keep this shortcut or remove it and save you some real-estate property on your Windows screen and Start menu.

If there are any other modes/shortcuts you would like us to have, please suggest these in the PowerGUI discussion forums.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
