We re-ordered parts of the Solution Explorer project context menu in Visual Studio 2013 RC. You’ll find the ‘Add Reference’ and similar items in the ‘Add’ flyout and we’ve added a couple more flyouts to help reduce the root-level overload. Let us know what you think!
Thanks a lot for this suggestion and all the votes.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve removed the Windows-only restriction from our license. We’ve applied this new license to most of our packages and will continue to use this license moving forward.
Here is our announcement:
For reference, the license for stable packages can be found here:

I resent the implication that because I want a Ribbon and I use a mouse and menus instead of a key board that I am not a "Power User" I am most certainly a Power user. I just happen to be a very visual person, I don't remember arbitrary commands very well but I do remember visual cues really well. As for those suggesting that I should spend time configuring the tool bar, you are missing the point. I am a Power user therefore I need a visual way of navigating to every command available in Visual studio.
Come on haters, there is no reason that you will loose any keyboard short cuts, because we get a ribbon interface. for those that want extra room then collapse the ribbon (or buy a larger monitor).
Its not the tool bars that need addressing it is the context menu. With resharper and a couple of other plugins like VS commands and Code Maid my right click menu is out of control. Help!!
The ribbon is a great idea. Screen real estate concerns seem overrated to me, as a dev I either use dual monitors or a 24" min screen. So I have lots of space.

The ability to filter and group by Traits (category) has been added in Update 1. http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/visual-studio-update
A recent blog post detailing working with this feature is available. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2012/11/09/how-to-manage-unit-tests-in-visual-studio-2012-update-1-part-1-using-traits-in-the-unit-test-explorer.aspx
I dont really want to have to search all of the time but search would be better than nothing.
I would like to be able to sort my tests by test category, and project/class
the new test explorer is pretty but not very functional, no sorting abiliuty and francly it is difficult to tell when tests have finished running unless the status changes from red to green or vice versa
